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.
