The McHenry Landmark Crazy Quilt Final Block

 The final block of the McHenry Landmark Crazy Quilt! I just finished this yesterday.

Started in 2017, this is a traditional Victorian style Crazy Quilt pieced and embroidered entirely by hand on a cotton foundation fabric.
Each of the 30 blocks featuring a McHenry Landmark is 9 inches square. All lace is either vintage or antique. I used vintage Mother Of Pearl buttons to make the little spiders. The Victorians loved spiders, so each block has a spider and spiderweb.
The next step of the process is to assemble it. I will do this on my sewing machine! It will have a 3 inch border around the outside and a sleeve on the back for hanging.
When it's entirely complete, I will be doing a presentation on this project for the McHenry Landmark Commission and The McHenry Area Historical Society. I expect this will event will be in the Fall of this year.
I'll post photos of the assembly process when I get to that. I need to do some calculating and pick up the supplies for finishing it.
Here are all 30 blocks "Photoshopped" together:
If you click on the photo, you can enlarge it to see it better.
I'll be rearranging the blocks for visual balance.

Complexity Of The Colorful Cats

Karen Gillespie graciously put together a spreadsheet laying out the complexity and simplicity of The Colorful Cats designs.  This list includes the number of DMC threads, Kreinik threads, specialty stitches and buttons needed for each pattern.

You might find this helpful in determining which of the cats you would like to stitch.  You can find a downloadable PDF file here:
