McHenry Crazy Quilt Update

 Block 23 of my McHenry Crazy Quilt:



This is our first High School built in 1924 on the east side of town.  In the late 1960's, a 2nd High School was built on the west side.

Each block is 9 inches square.  The vintage photos are printed on fabric sheets that run through my printer.

The blocks are pieced entirely by hand on a cotton foundation fabric.

There will be 40 blocks all together.

Most of these buildings are still here although a few have burned down (a long match in my opinion).

I have to get some more photos printed up.  17 blocks to go!!!

Birthday Cats Cupcake and Celebrate

If you missed out on my exclusive birthday Colorful Cat Cupcake, she is now available in my Etsy shop.


She was a birthday gift to my Facebook group Fans Of Kitty And Me Designs.  I just released a new birthday cat for the upcoming 2021/2022 year.  Her name is Celebrate:


I know not everyone is a fan of Facebook so I've made Cupcake available in my store for anyone who didn't receive her and Celebrate is now the new gift for my group. If you would like to sign up for the Celebrate, just click on the link above to join and follow the instructions to sign up.  You will receive Celebrate as a PDF download via your email address on your birthday!!

McHenry Historical Crazy Quilt

 I've just complete Block 22 of the McHenry Crazy Quilt:


This is the old Universalist Church built in 1853.  It still stands today and is the Masonic Lodge.

So far I have 22 9 inch blocks completed.  18 more blocks to go and plenty of old landmarks to document.

The next block will be the old High School which still stands and is still in use.

Here's the quilt so far:


I'm sure I'll rearrange the blocks when I put it together.  But that's another 18 blocks away!
