The Quilt Shop Cuckoo Clock

Made in Germany its the real thing! And it’s animated: The cuckoo’s call triggers the quilter to cut and the kitty to jump with joy! It’s the perfect clock for quilters!

Crafted to resemble quaint buildings, the cuckoo clocks Jodie Davis collected over the years made her long for one designed after one of her favorite places: a quilt shop. Her dream became a reality when she contacted the Schneider Cuckoo Clock Company of Schonach Germany. She pitched her crazy idea and they said go!

Like every cuckoo clock, on the hour and half hour the cuckoo emerges to proclaim the time. But on this clock the cuckoo precipitates a chain of actions. The quilter’s arm moves to rotary cut the fabric painted on the table, the kitty jumps up and down on a stack of fabric bolts and a chimney sweep pops out of the chimney.

The clock’s pendulum is, naturally, a spool of thread.

Jodie designed the quilts by the door of the clock using Electric Quilt 5. She scanned and emailed catalog images of a rotary cutter and fabric bolts to help the sculptors in Germany carve the props.

Hand made in the heart of the Black Forest, the quilt shop cuckoo clock is created by skilled craftspeople, with some of the stages of manufacture taking place in their homes as has been the tradition for over a hundred of years.

Now available: The clock ships from Germany with a kitty. After several requests I am now offering a dog option. I sculpted him to look like a generic dog (any resemblance to my Golden mix Comet is completely unintentional. Besides, where’s the obligatory tennis ball?) Yes, you can repaint the dog using acrylics.

    I actually have one of the originals. Great back story to this clock and this really talented clock designer. I videotaped her in Germany as she meticulously planned this clock. She amazed her television crew, and impressed the generations old Anton Schneider factory personnel completely. This clock of mine keeps on ticking and has been since 2006. Perfect! It gets a lot of comments from guests and watching it and hearing it in action never gets old. Good, authentic clocks are a nice touch in the home. Not many people have cuckoo clocks anymore. Such a shame.

    I was lucky enough to receive my 8 day just in time for our late Christmas. I couldn’t be more pleased. It came really well packaged to prevent shipping damage and had clear step by step instructions on how to unpack and set it up. I had to settle for the jumping kitty instead of the doggy whch I preferred, but Jodie has been in touch and assures me that she will send one as soon as they are weend and that putting it in place is something I can do easily.

    What a lovely sound!!

      Yes Shannon, my carver Lance had a record-breaking Christmas, so he wasn’t able to supply me with dogs when I saw how big the demand was. So I’ll send you the dog for your clock when I receive it from him. It simply slips onto a wire, so yes, super easy to install. I’m so glad you’re happy with the clock!

    Wow, this clock is adorable and perfect for a quilt studio. I feel so lucky to have been able to get one of these cuckoo clocks. The clock came perfectly packaged with clear directions. Be sure your clock is level before you start the clock. I love mine!

    • JOdieRD (verified owner)

      Thanks for your kind words Harolyn! Your insight into leveling the clock is helpful. I checked and it is in the instructions, but I beefed it up with another sentence. I think maybe a page on my site “Oh No! I Set Up My Cuckoo And It’s Not Working!” might help to. On the to-do list.
      So glad you’re pleased with your clock!

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my Quilt Shop Cuckoo. It has been perfect right out of the box. I feel like my room is complete now and this little bird keeps me smiling all day long. I couldn’t be happier. In todays time, it’s not often that you receive a product that works 100% like it should. This is one that I can highly recommend.

    I’m in love with my Quilt Shop cuckoo clock. I smile when I come in my bedroom. I think that’s a good place to have a cuckoo clock. It looks like if the clock is saying “Home sweet home” 😉 Why not? Cuckoo calls don’t disturb my sleep at all. Thank you for your very fast shipping! I recommend any of your fantastic clocks to everybody. Wish you a great success with you next designs!

      Thank you Esther for letting me know that you are happy with your clock. I say my mission is to spread smiles on my customers’ faces, but you just out one on mine. What a dividend!

    I too love my quilt shop cuckoo clock! ?
    It was my gift to myself for all the hard work I’ve put into my quilt room. My friends are going to love it as much as I do. Thank you so much for making her look like me with the red hair
    Love it, love it,Love it

    • JOdieRD (verified owner)

      Oh Shirley I’m so glad that you are so happy with the clock! So the red hair was okay? I need to add that as an option on the site. Thanks for suggesting it!

      Happy quilting,
