Stuffed whitework quilt with fringed edges. White cotton quilt is made up of 16 blocks, each hand-quilted with a large circular medallion containing a flower-filled urn. The designs are stuffed with cotton batting in the trapunto style. This quilt was brought to Wyandotte County, Kansas, in 1857 by Jeremiah King. It probably was made in either Missouri or Kentucky by members of the King family.
