Blue, white and pink cotton quilt in Broken Star pattern, with close and fine quilting overall. The binding is marked with the initials "M E T" on the back. According to the donor, the quilt belonged to her uncle's parents, Eugene and Annie Elizabeth Carmichael Metzger. They were married in Missouri in 1880 and moved to Hunter, Mitchell County, Kansas and then later to Lane, Franklin County, Kansas. The quilt may have been part of Annie Metzger's hope chest.
