I stopped at Michael's last night & bought another clock works for my Crazy Clock, since I can't find the one I bought 3 years ago when I first started working on it. I put the clock together today, then put a back cover over the whole thing, to make the backside look nice to. I covered it with a piece of Aubusson Chenille wool upholstery fabric.
I put a split sleeve at the top, so that the whole thing can be hung on a rod at the quilt show, & can be hung on a nail on my wall. It measures 12" wide by 24" long. I made a little window over the clock works to place the battery through. I guess I'll have to make a label for it before I can actually call it DONE.

I also worked on more ribbons for the Alaska Fiber Festival. The 2 wild ones on the left are for the Viewer's Choice on the Aussie Challenge quilts. They're made from the print that was required for the challenge.

How clever you are to put a real clock in a quilt. Cool ribbons, too!

I love your clock, the web around the hands is wonderful. The ribbons are great too.

Wonderful backing fabric for a magical quilt! Wouldn't I love to win a ribbon like those.
