Vintage quilt

Hi Everyone,
So, I was out doing a spot of opp shopping today (as you do)and I came across this amazing quilt.
I quickly snapped it up as I had found not much else to buy, and shoved it in a bag and continued on.
 It wasn't until I had a good look at it when I got home I realised what a treasure I had found.

it covers my queen size bed

The fabrics are beautiful 1940s-1950s fabrics

and its sewn on to a pale yellow bemsilk

best of all its signed and dated
                      I wonder who this lady was and why it was never used as its in pristine condition.
                                               I'm afraid the photos don't do it justice.
                                                      Do you have a quilt with a history?
                                                                          Cheers  Lyn
