This month Island Batik challenge was to create something whimsical or wonky, I will be honest and tell you I found this one difficult, I spent a long time trying to think of an idea… The fabrics and batting used in this project were given to me from Island batik as part of the Island Batik Ambassador Program.
Ive always liked the Alice in wonderland clock with the reversed numbers, and my hubby mentioned the ‘melting clock’ by Salvador Dalí, so i have combined the two.
I wanted to make the top half of the clock as neat as possible, so I made the numbers and clock handle quite fine, and free motion quilted them in place using Gutermann threads, which coordinated so well with the Island Batik ‘check it out’ fabrics I chose.
I was slightly apprehensive about making the ‘melting’ part of the clock, it felt uncomfortable making something purposely wonky 😉
I wanted to make it look like the clock had melted right off the end of the quilt
Possibly the strangest thing I’ve made
Thanks for reading, I would love to hear from you, please leave a comment below
Merry Christmas to all, until next time… happy sewing
