    I made one similiar to this from a kit many years ago. I had forgotten about them until a couple of years ago when I saw them in a quilt shop. They are very cool! And yours is fabulous, I never would have thought of making a clock out of it.

    That is beautiful. I saw a kit for this somewhere while on vacation in Illinois last week. Thought about giving it a try.

    I found a product like you're describing that was packaged at a quilt show. It was called "Artist Quilt Boards." The only differences were: there was double sided film over the pattern so you peel off the paper covering and use it as the pattern; the pink insulation was glued to a thin board; there was a thin piece of foam that you glue on the back when finished to cover the glue and fabric that you wrapped around from the front; and there was a picture hangar. $12 for 8x10 and $6 for 6x6". Patterns included pouring teaputs, mission-style designs ala Frank Lloyd Wrighht stained glass windows, and of course quilt blocks. They were selling like hot cakes. The vendor must have had an automated method to cut the top layers, and they were selling like hot cakes.

    I love your clock, and your work is beautiful! I used this method years ago on an ornament, and had forgotten about it. Your piece makes me want to try it again. I remember enjoying the process. Thanks for sharing.

    That's really beautiful! I love the fabric you chose for the "frame" and the filigree clock hands are perfect for the design! Thank you for sharing how it was done.

    very pretty. here in the states i've seen this technique but using it as a clock is a great idea. my friends and i have only made xmas ornaments that way with syraform balls and used different xmas material in a crazy quilt type pattern so each one ones is unique. you can also add ribbon and stuff like that. I like to add glitter too.
