I need help from my fellow quilters

I have been trying to find out information on the quilt in my slideshow.  
In my family we always called it "The Little Women Quilt". My mother made this quilt for my older sister and she started one for me (at least she started mine, my younger sister got left out, again).  I have all the pieces for the one she started for me but haven't done anything with it.  I think I'm afraid I'll mess it up.
From what I understand the pattern was published by Ladies Home Journal.  I contacted them but they were unaware of such a pattern. The pattern must be about 60 years old.
I am hoping there is someone out there in the quilting world that has seen this quilt pattern or knows something about it and would be kind enough to share the information with me.  For some reason this quilt has always intrigued me.  
The quilt may look "tired", but oh the stories the quilt could tell about all the children that have been wrapped up in it.
