Welcome to the Quilting Board!
That is an outstanding tip for all who fear those circles. Thanks to you I may even venture outside my comfort zone of straight lines!
PittsburgPam: what a terrific idea- I have been wondering how that was done .. Thanks for sharing

Thanks for sharing this Pam, I been putting off finishing a mariners compass quilt. This will make that finish much easier.
I love this idea. I use elmer's glue with the special tip for all my binding installations. I read just the other day how some use just a little dab on those matching seams instead of pins so I tried it. Yes, it works like a charm so I may be investing in Elmer's Glue with all the ways we can use it in our quilt making. Thanks for this tip as I've always been afraid of circles.

Pam this is going to be so helpful! Thanks for the tute! I bookmarked it in three different ways so I can find it again.
I have two questions:
Where can you buy heat resistant mylar?
Forgive my ignorance, but in your last step, what does "open it up" mean?
... My husband lets me buy all the fabric I can hide.
I think I could do that! You have made it look so easy but I know "easier said than done" for sure! Still I want to try this!

I believe there are several different brands of the no-melt, or heat resistant, mylar plastic template sheets. I got mine at Amazon in the 12"x18" size for this. They also come in packs of 6 sheets of 8"x11". I use them for applique shapes too, like all the hearts in my avatar picture.
Looks great Pam!
