    This probably isn't the one you are looking for, but here is a link to a method using coffee filters.

    Happy girl, you've made me happy with the jog to the memory regarding this video. I'm sitting here contemplating doing a mariner's compass - how timely!

    Wow I am always amazed at the great information we all share and this one is defiantly a must know technique. I have try so many times to make a "perfect circle" block just to toss it aside and change to a different block because even with all my experience, those block's never looked round to me. SO with this new found information, I feel confident I can now do it and do it right!

    THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!

    Thanks for the Simply Quilts Tute. I had seen this technique many years ago and had forgotten. Sure miss the good programming on HGTV namely Simply Quilts
