Block 16 of the McHenry Historical Crazy Quilt

I completed another block for my McHenry Historical Crazy Quilt:

Block 16 of my McHenry Historical Crazy Quilt. This is the Gage House, a hotel built by the Hon. George Gage in 1858. Later it became known as The Parker House but sadly burned down in 1890. It was replaced by the current Simon Stoffel building.

This quilt is a work in progress recording the early history of McHenry's historic buildings. It's worked in the traditional Victorian style, pieced by hand on a cotton foundation using traditional fabrics and colors. All embroidery is worked by hand as well. All lace is vintage or antique.

Next block: The Methodist church.
