    I saw this on youtube. It might be in German, but in the background, you hear all sorts of different languages. Watch the entire thing - at the end, it all "comes together"

    Very interesting. I've also seen it done by appliqueing a circle in the middle and then cutting it into fourths.

    Yes Rapture. I was looking for the very easiest way - the original way was way too difficult for me. Do you think she was using freezer paper on the video, and then starch - and was that white glue?? -' sure wish I spoke the language!

    I wish this was in English as well, as that sure is a perfect circle!

    I made a quilt last year which was all circles (see picture below) :-D

    1. Cut out exact size of circle you want from freezer paper.
    2. Iron this onto fabric, trim around leaving 1/4" seam allowance.
    3. Peel off and turn freezer paper over so sticky side is up pin back in place.
    4. Using iron push edge of fabric over freezer paper, it will adhere to it,(no need to snip into fabric) keep iron at right angles to paper and you will get a perfect circle.
    5. Place on background fabric, pin in place.
    6. Use a straight stitch, sew as close to edge as possible.
    7. Turn over and trim away inner background fabric, leaving 1/4" seam allowance.
    8. Remove freezer paper.

    Your block is complete!!

    I use a small piece of wood on my ironing table, as I think you get a much sharper edge when you are ironing the edge down and can 'hear' a small crunch as it bonds to the freezer paper.

    You can re-use the back ground fabric to make slightly smaller circles, so no waste!!

    Have fun! :-D

    Yes I think you are correct...frezer paper,spray the can starch in lid to make liquid, and craft glue.
    Then you sew around it to finish it.( lift up and sew between clipped area)

    That is too much work for the results. You can obtain a like affect by sewing the 4 outside pieced together to make a square with an open middle then sew a circle into the open middle with an edging of large rick-rack or lace, etc.The enclosed picture is my interpertation of a potholder for the drunkard patch design. I could also be used for a block, but with a different method of piecing.

    Drunkards Path Potholder.

    I would think she probably used applique glue so it would dissolve, craft glue would be hard wouldn't it?
