FINISHED THE 4 BLOCKS!! I've only got to put the backing on and it's done. I'm thrilled with it, although it's take a long time to do. Love Chris
Try as I might I couldn't get all the points absolutely perfectly aligned. There are so many thicknesses in this project which makes it really stiff, but it will still be a lovely table topper when I finish it off. Love Chris.
Lovely, Chris...are you adding any borders? What color binding and what is the finished size?
There will only be blue binding like that backing fabric it's sitting on in the picture. The finished size is only about 19 inches. It's just going to sit on a little table of mine in the loungeroom. Love Chris
Chris, this topper is so pretty!
Exceptional, I am sure it will be gorgeous when completed!
Please keep us posted on this work of art in progress. Hugs.

What a lovely turnout of the design, Chris. You always make such wonderful projects. Love the colors as well. Love, Mary
Thanks Mary, I wish I could have attended the special class. I love Urban Zundt's designs and Sally (the owner of the ZigZag sewing shop is a fabulous lady). She often has special classes of overseas guest Embroiderers and I enrol in them all if able. The shop is only about a 20 minute drive from my home. Love Chris
Wish we had classes like this over here. Hugs
Makes me want to move to Australia just so I can see this in person! This is a superb block with so much detail and variation. Why do you think you had so many thread breaks? I think that unusual for you.
Well, it's been very humid here and I don't think my sewing machine likes it. I persevered though as the colour of thread I used were from my own stash of threads. I changed needles a couple of times too just to make sure and then in the end I slowed my machine down to 350 stitches. I have 3 sets of speed, 350, 600 and 1000!!! Love Chris
Thanks for the info!
Chris, That is so nice. I love your colors......can't wait to see it as you progress.
Thanks Tonya, it was a set, and as my home is blues I chose this one, everything was already in the pack. Love Chris
Thanks Sandy, I think so too. Love Chris
Another beauty :):)hugs
Thanks Carolyn, a lot of work though! Love Chris
Looks beautiful, who does the design?
Thanks, it's Urban Zundt and Tracey Sims. It was a special class put on at my sewing shop where I bought my Brother Sewing machine from. The shop is called ZigZag sewing here in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia. Love Chris
Wow!!!Stunning block!!!going to be a Most Gorgeous Quilt!!!!
Hi Sonja, this is going to be a Table Topper, only 4 pieces to do! Love Chris
This is beautiful. Can't wait to see more!
Thanks, me too! Love Chris
Very nice. Is it part appliqué?
Yes the first section with the bow shape is all applique. Love Chris
Wow, this is really stunning!! Love the colors!
Thanks Laura, I'm into these colours. Love Chris
WOW, love this and your colors are wonderful. Looking foreward to seeing the completed projects
Thanks Michelle, everything was supplied in the kit. This is the Australiana one with bows and bubbles! Love Chris
Love their designs...Can't wait to see what it looks like finished...
I tried to search for it on their site, but did not find it when I searched "Urban"
This was a special class held here in Newcastle, Australia. I believe it was made just for the class, but don't quote me on that! The class CD was included in the cost along with all of the fabric, parlan and tilda fix lite. It was an expensive day love Chris
Looking forward to seeing it all come together!
