Carol's Time

Well, here it is....sorry for the wait.

When the word Time was selected, I puzzled and puzzled. I finally came up with a clock I remembered in a MacGyver show - very retro, so I thought it would be a good one for me.
I used my 11 X 14 in a portrait view, drew the desired shapes on the fabric, then proceeded to use fabric paint for the neon. I stitched in the numbers, which took a bit of time (pun intended) and then used orange thread to make wavy lines around the neon section. The hands on the clock were just a satin stitch that I gradually shortened until I got what I wanted.
I have sent along the original picture I "borrowed" off the internet.
Well, life got in the way, but here it is.

Original pic from the internet:
That's MacGyver's shoulder in the lower left corner.


  1. Great interpretation of the MacGyver clock! The orange really does look like neon and the numbers were worth the time (!!!! ) to execute in thread.

  2. What a cool interpretation!! Love how you achieved the neon feel! Better late than never!!

  3. Love your composition on this! It's so striking! Great job!

  4. I love your clock! It's very striking.

  5. What a clever idea, and what a memory you have! Yes, better late then never. We'll see if Randy can incorporate this in our Time composite. Truly this is a great quilt, a clever idea, and much artistry resulted. I, too, love the way you achieved the neon effect!
