From the Collection of Muriel McCarl of W Pennsylvania

Please be patient there are 19 photos to be loaded in this sale.

We found ourselves with a number of quilts and are going to be listing them over the next few days or longer, however long it takes.

This is an attractive quilt, a part of the estate collection of Foster and Muriel McCarl of W Pennsylvania. This quilt has the tag that identifies it as being part of the data base of the Western Pennsylvania Quilt Documentation Project, dated as being done between 1901 and 1929. It is comprised of 25 blocks, measuring approx. 14" by 14.5", each with a large floral motif done in red, yellow and green, both machine pieced and hand appliqued. (The quilt project shows that this is machine pieced, but it sure looks to me as if it is hand pieced.) The blocks have mitered corners, and they come together in a well matched star and are arranged without sashing in a 5 by 5 pattern, with five stripes of different fabrics to create a border which is mitered at the corners. The wonderful quilting is done by hand, stitch in the ditch and leaves, with a stitch count of 17 (counting above and below) per inch where I measured it. The back is made of panels of white cotton, pieced together. It measures approx. 85" by 85". The quilt has seen moderate use, and some of the fabric not held up as well as other fabrics used in this piece. The green fabric has bled dye that is mostly visible on the back. You can see in the photos that a section of the border is bleached and there are assorted small stains. There are still many nights of use left in this quilt.

This was a part of a collection amassed by Muriel and Foster McCarl of Beaver Falls, PA. They began to collect quilts in the 1950's. We found this obituary for her from last year:

Mrs. McCarl and her late husband, Foster McCarl Jr., collected hand-made quilts and coverlets for more than 50 years, amassing what their son called "a unique, world-class collection."

"In the early 1950s my parents developed a real passion for Americana," he said. "They connected the fabric of the quilts to the fabric of history and the lives of the people who made them.

Eventually, he said, they decided to transfer the collection to galleries that would display and preserve the pieces for others to appreciate.

They donated the quilts to the Abbey Aldrich Rockefeller Museum at Colonial Williamsburg, also endowing the McCarl Folk Art Galley there. But they wanted to keep part of the collection in Western Pennsylvania, which lead to the creation of the McCarl Coverlet Gallery at Fred Rogers Center of Saint Vincent College.

Mrs. McCarl was born Muriel Phillips in Beaver Falls, where her father was secretary-treasurer of Moltrup Steel. She graduated first from Beaver Falls High School, then from Eastman School of Music in Rochester, where she studied classical piano. She could have gone on to a career in New York, said her son, but she chose to marry Mr. McCarl, her high school sweetheart. They were together 63 years, until his death in 2007.

Mrs. McCarl worked as a music teacher, then joined her husband in his business, McCarl's Plumbing and Heating. As the business grew into a mechanical contracting firm, the family grew to include four sons, and Mrs. McCarl stayed home to raise them. She also became a busy volunteer at Chippewa United Methodist Church, where she was choir director and music teacher for 30 years, as well as a donor of musical instruments.

"She believed people could connect to God spiritually through music," said her son.

Sadly, she is gone now, but you can enjoy a part of her beloved collection, and make this jewel your own! Good Luck! Estimated shipping weight, (packaged) is 6 lbs 12 oz in a 20 x 16 x 8 box. The Calculator is not always right - if the shipping looks too high email us and we will give you an accurate quote prior to the sale ending. ************ What a great find!

Please note: We put up a very ecclectic collection of items and are not experts in every area,
so descriptions are our best guess as to what something is. While we try to research each item to the
best of our ability, it is the buyer's responsibility to know what they are buying.


is ALL we do for a living, husband and wife (Norb & Marie) working together, while we home school our kids on our farmette in Rural Delmarva. We have worked very hard to build our little business and it is very important to us. We try and do business the old fashioned way and have a rather simple outlook.

Treat all of your customers as if they are family.

Be courteous, answer emails, be fair in all your deallings and try and make friends of each and every customer.

BUT... with 's new star rating and the rate increases in the U.S. Postal rates we needed to define and explain our methods of business.

ONE - Who We Deal With

We sell and ship world wide to anywhere, so please email us for a quote to wherever you happen to be.

TWO - Shipping Charges

We charge shipping based on the USPS system, we will sometimes ship via courier if we can get it to you within the same time frame or faster. We add a reasonable cost for materials, normally that is $2.00 for regular sized packages. For small flat items $1.00. That covers the expense of boxes, envelopes, bubble wrap, peanuts, (We only use new packing materials, life is too short to scrounge through dumpsters). For larger items that take a larger more expensive box, we charge a little more, to cover the special box, example paintings or lamps. For oversized items or items that will take special attention to package, (Build a crate, wrap a zillion things individually, etc.), we ask you to email us for a quote on shipping prior to the sale ending. If you do not, we charge the same amount as if you did. In other words WE NEVER GOUGE OUR CLIENTS SHIPPING COSTS!!

THREE - International Shipping

We charge shipping based on the USPS international system. The rates follow the same guidelines as number two above, though for international customers we add an additional $1.00 to cover the extra paperwork involved in international shipping. If an amount goes over $50 in value we will only ship it with Priority or Express Mail, regardless how small an item. That allows for us to have international tracking. There is no tracking available on First Class Mail.

FOUR - Insurance

's policies no longer allows us to charge the client for insurance. But... we still apply insurance to any item that goes over $27.00 in value. We reserve the right to use the insurance carrier of our choice. Sometimes that is Postal or the Carrier's Insurance and sometimes that is a private insurance company such as DSI or U-PIC/Shipsurance. If we use a private insurance company the package will not be marked insured, but it will be.

FIVE - Methods of Payment Accepted

We aoffere by 's rules and try and stay abreast of their changes. We accept Paypal. Paypal also accepts the major credit cards, or we also take Credit Cards Directly over the phone, (MC, VISA, DISCOVER, AMERICAN EXPRESS, CARTE BLANCHE, DINERS CLUB, JCB) Bottom line, whatever method is most convenient for you.

SIX - Time Frame To Pay

We ask all sales to be paid for in the fastest possible time frame. (This is all we do for a living and we need the money to pay the bills and buy more unique and fun items to put up on )

SEVEN - Shipping Time Frame

We make every effort to ship in a timely manner. We are home schooling the boys, listing tons of items, and as like any of us are just plain swamped, so we have to schedule a special time to pack and ship. We ship on a first paid, first shipped basis. (We do not ship any item until it has been paid and the funds have cleared.) With the ebb and flow of payments we manage to get everything out of the door within one week. If there is a rush, we will make every effort to work with you in getting it out of the door faster. As you can see from our response, we do not disappoint. OF COURSE, items that need special attention, crating, etc adds to the time frame of those items.

Finally, EIGHT - Communication

Please feel free to contact us at anytime, with any question or comment. Unless we are out of town we make an effort to answer all emails as quickly as possible.
