I have a magazine around here somewhere with how to reverse applique circles by machine, let me look for it.

It's in American Quilter Spring 2007 issue. There's an applique quilt of a little girl with a straw hat walking in a garden on the cover. My scanner got taken off of life support and no longer functions so I cannot scan it. The article is Pieced Circles, No Pins, No Pain by Ricky Tims.

Also, here is a link that might be helpful.

Thank You Babeegirl I had printed out the instructions and I like the Block that is being used for an example.

I may well be too late to help you but here is a tip for sewing circles.
You will need a drawing pin and say a large band aid. Push the sharp pin up through to the centre of the non sticky side of the band aid. Work out the size of your circle and stick the plaster onto the sewing machine half that distance from your needle. Then find the centre of the circle on the fabric and push that onto the pointed bit. Sew slowly with small stitches, easing the fabric round in a circle., You can now cut away the circle part and add fancy stitch to cover the raw circle. Works every time.
