Question How do you insert a perfect circle into a background?

A couple of years ago I visited a LQS in Paris, TN. They had a beautiful wall hanging displayed that had a design made up of large circles (NOT appliquéd).

When I said it looked very difficult, the shop owner said it was really VERY easy--she had done something like stitching the circle on one side of the fabric, cutting out the fabric behind it, and pushing it through to the other side.

I can't remember what she told me, but I know there had been a class on it, and I am sure someone out there must be familiar with this method. The LQS is not longer in business, and I don't know who to go to for information. Can any of you "Quilting Sisters" help me?

Thanks so much!

Sounds like it may be something like reverse applique?

Try the circles and squares throw from allpeoplequilt.com or google modern circle quilts.
Personally, the one from allpeoplequilt seems so easy. But there are many "modern" circle quilts that look fantastic.
Good luck.
