This Album Quilt was collected by Muriel and Foster McCarl and later documented by the Western Pennsylvania Quilt Documentation Project. The McCarl’s began collecting quilts in the 1950s. They had a special interest in antiques that were signed and dated.

Quilts documented by the Western Pennsylvania Quilt Documentation Project are included in The Quilt Index (quiltindex.org), an online tool for centralized public access to public and private collections of quilts and quilt-related materials. The Quilt Index is a project of Michigan State University Museum, MSU’s MATRIX, and the Quilt Alliance.
