    Okay now it makes sense. Couldn't see how sewing around a tack would give you a circle., lol. Thanks for explaining it to those of us who are circularly challenged.

    now that is a great idea.

    I have a circle maker attachment for my Singer 301. I have been planning on using it to make a mock cathedral window quilt.

    I saw this demonstrated on PBS tv last week on Martha's show (not Stewart.) Very clever and I intend to try it soon.
