I took where we made turtles using a machine stitched circle with a background and I can't remember how to do this...it was over 3 years ago but had to leave before I finished the blocks and now want to finish it. It was really clever and no hand sewing. Does anyone know this method or where I can find it. I've gone into some sites but they have raw edges, applique or whatever. Although I like other methods I liked the sewing machine stitching the best. I haven't had time to quilt for a few years due to DH illness but want to finish up some old projects.
