    Round Baby Quilts???

    I saw a post recently where a woman had made a baby quilt by joining wedges of scrappy fabric together to make a round circle and then appliqued over the hole left in the middle.
    My question is: that she used a special template made of plastic for this but I am not sure I want to buy one for just one quilt - especially if I don't care for it when I am done piecing it together. Is there a way to make a cardboard template to use instead?
    I make a lot of quilts for a charity and don't want to invest money that I could put towards batting instead.
    Thanks for your input!
    So many books, so little time.

    You could just make a 9 or 10 degree wedge template and try it.
