Circus snowballs

My Circus Snowballs for a neighbour's long awaited little bundle of joy - I have so enjoyed making this - the fabrics are so cheerful and fun.



Here is a bit of a close-up of my pieced triangles - not perfect - but I am pleased with 99% of them - often I am a bit slapdash with my piecing - "it should be fine, I cut them correctly and sewed them correctly, so they should just join" but this time I pinned like a mad woman!

Don't neglect your pins and you shall be rewarded!




This is a photo of the edging I miraculously thought up - chop a block in half - after I stuffed up one edge of the top - yay! I feel good.
(Don't look at the triangle points on the left- aaaaccchhh - it's hurting my eyes - so is this font size)


I found metres of a lovely blue pindot in my stash - where was that hiding? - which tones in beautifully with the aquaey blue blocks, for the binding and the cream 'performers' for the back.
