Description

I've been working on some items to take to our family reunion to be used in a raffle.  This is one that I got finished just in time!  

I made the New England quilt block to use as a clock because it has twelve identifiable points for the hours.  I quilted it through two layers of batting so that it would be well-padded to be stretched around the frame my husband built to fit the block.

Carolmarie , many years ago my aunt made clocks in wooden hoops by just stretching fabric in the hoop and putting in the clockworks. Last summer I came up with the thought that I could use a quilt block and perhaps make some to sell. Never got around to it and then I found the clockworks in my drawer as I was sorting things out and figured I could put one together fairly quickly (since I had waited til last minute to come up with something for the raffle) and it did go together pretty well. Husband was very helpful to make me a wooden frame to stretch it on. Glad you think so!

Oh my gosh, I had never seen this block until two days ago and picked it for my month that is coming up. Love the clock and the fabric you picked

Thank you Quilt455 . Maybe you'll get an identical block if the colors are to your liking. LOL Since I was making the clock for a Maine family reunion, and the block had the right number of 'markers" to mark out the hours, it was a no-brainer to use it. I wanted to call it "New England Primary" since I used mostly primary colors...but didn't. Glad you picked this block; it's a fun one to make.

Caribousmom , thank you Wendy. With the correct number of 'markers', it is perfect for the hour hand of the clock. Nice to hear you like it.
