The top for this quilt was completed in 2014. I finally got it quilted last fall. Then it took two months to get the binding and buttons sewn. But-- it was technically completed just before the new year:
The quilt is from a kit my husband gifted me in 2013 from the Fat Quarter Shop. Though the fabric is no more, the design is still available as a free project from Windham Quilts and is called "Tick Tock." I call my rendition, "Watch the Clocks."
Pardon my dark and dreary pictures. My front hallway in the darkness of winter is not very photo-friendly.
Since it involved only simple piecing and fusible applique, this was a super quick and fun quilt to put together. In fact, I constructed nearly all of the top one morning during a quit-the-day-away event I attended.
It took awhile before I decided how to go about quilting it. I kind of wanted to create a feeling of gears running behind the clock faces. I think the wavy-line-circle design running across the background captures that pretty well.
Since the hanger I intended to use is closed, I needed to devise a plan to be able to take the quilt on and off of it. I decided on simple buttonhole tabs sewn in with the binding and placed the buttons on the back. It works quite well.
And the label.
We have a beautiful grandfather clock in our hallway, just across from where the quilt hangs. It is a happy pairing!
