Product Description

The Quilt Shop Cuckoo Clock

Made in Germany its the real thing! And it’s animated: The

cuckoo’s call triggers the quilter to cut and the kitty to jump with joy! It’s the perfect quilt for quilters!

Crafted to resemble quaint buildings, the cuckoo clocks Jodie Davis collected over the years made her long for one designed after one of her favorite places: a quilt shop. Her dream became a reality when she contacted the Schneider Cuckoo Clock Company of Schonach Germany. She pitched her crazy idea and they said go!

Like every cuckoo clock, on the hour and half hour the cuckoo emerges to proclaim the time. But on this clock the cuckoo precipitates a chain of actions. The quilter’s arm moves to rotary cut the fabric painted on the table, the kitty jumps up and down on a stack of fabric bolts and a chimney sweep pops out of the chimney.

The clock’s pendulum is, naturally, a spool of thread.

Jodie designed the quilts by the door of the clock using Electric Quilt 5. She scanned and emailed catalog images of a rotary cutter and fabric bolts to help the sculptors in Germany carve the props.

Hand made in the heart of the Black Forest, the quilt shop cuckoo clock is created by skilled craftspeople, with some of the stages of manufacture taking place in their homes as has been the tradition for over a hundred of years.

    I actually have one of the originals. Great back story to this clock and this really talented clock designer. I videotaped her in Germany as she meticulously planned this clock. She amazed her television crew, and impressed the generations old Anton Schneider factory personnel completely. This clock of mine keeps on ticking and has been since 2006. Perfect! It gets a lot of comments from guests and watching it and hearing it in action never gets old. Good, authentic clocks are a nice touch in the home. Not many people have cuckoo clocks anymore. Such a shame.

    I was lucky enough to receive my 8 day just in time for our late Christmas. I couldn’t be more pleased. It came really well packaged to prevent shipping damage and had clear step by step instructions on how to unpack and set it up. I had to settle for the jumping kitty instead of the doggy whch I preferred, but Jodie has been in touch and assures me that she will send one as soon as they are weend and that putting it in place is something I can do easily.

    What a lovely sound!!

      Yes Shannon, my carver Lance had a record-breaking Christmas, so he wasn’t able to supply me with dogs when I saw how big the demand was. So I’ll send you the dog for your clock when I receive it from him. It simply slips onto a wire, so yes, super easy to install. I’m so glad you’re happy with the clock!

    Wow, this clock is adorable and perfect for a quilt studio. I feel so lucky to have been able to get one of these cuckoo clocks. The clock came perfectly packaged with clear directions. Be sure your clock is level before you start the clock. I love mine!

      Thanks for your kind words Harolyn! Your insight into leveling the clock is helpful. I checked and it is in the instructions, but I beefed it up with another sentence. I think maybe a page on my site “Oh No! I Set Up My Cuckoo And It’s Not Working!” might help to. On the to-do list.
      So glad you’re pleased with your clock!

1-Day Quilt Shop Cuckoo Clock8 Day Quilt Shop Cuckoo ClocChoose a 1-Day or an 8-Day Movement

The Quilt Shop Cuckoo Clock is now available with an 8-day (on right) as well as a 1-day (to the left) movement.

With a 1-day movement, the clock will run for nearly a day on one winding. You will need to wind your clock morning and evening.

An 8-day movement will run for a week on one winding.

The 8-day clock has a different movement than the 1-day and larger, heavier weights. The cost is an additional $150.  I try to keep several 8-days in stock at all times. If I don’t have one the lead time is usually 4-6 weeks so Email me  if you need the clock immediately. Otherwise, when I confirm your order I will give you an estimate as to when your clock will be ready to ship. And I will also let you know when I am about to ship it. 8-Day Quilt Shop Cuckoo Clocks will be in stock at the end of March.
