    Necessity is the mother of invention. I dug up an old compass from my husbands engineering tools.

    That is so funny! I just got done using my white corelle plates for a scallop border on a quilt. Dinner plate on the outside curve and dessert plate on the inside curve. I am going to invest in the nice scallop border tool that you use with your rotary cutter soon.

    When I use to sew all my clothes, I always useds bowls and saucers to hold down the pattern on the fabric for cutting out the pieces. That's what Grandma did.
