#39 Balls in the Air

This is another paper-pieced block for the Splendid Sampler QAL.  This one is designed by Aylin Ozturk and I wasn't going to do it as it had so many teeny-tiny pieces in it to make it into a circle,  some of the pieces had seam allowances larger than the actual piece and would have been really bulky.  On closer inspection I thought that I could do the centre, cut it out into a circle and then simply applique it onto the background, which is what I've done. I cut a circle of Bondaweb, snipped away the centre of it to make a ring and stuck it to the circle.  Then centred it onto the background piece and sewed it on the machine using the blanket stitch.
