    My mind is wondering. What if you cut the circle from a piece they you had pieced. If you had 4 pieces sewn together then cut your circle from that piece it would look like you had pieced 4 pieces into a circle. Do you understand what I am saying? It would look very scrappy which is what I like. Oh the things I can do with this. Thanks so much for posting this. I'm gonna have some fun.

    There was a thread on this board the other day asking for the best resources for quilting tutorials and advice. There were numerous answers. My answer was this board. I have learned so much from this board. I am so glad that the wonderful ladies and gentlemen on this board take the time to do tutorials like this.

    Thank you so much for this tutorial. It was clear and easy to follow and I will definitely use it.

    I took a class in that too, & I love this technique. The lady I took it from showed us with a little smaller circle & then do another circle kind of partly over lapping the first circle. You complete the first circle first. I hope this makes sence.

    In the middle left portion of your screen, just above "Author" is the bookmark tab.

    YES!!!!! That works well too. I actually used it on a paper-pieced star pattern that I inset into a square. I should dig it out and take a pic.

    I copied all MadQuilter's instructions and pictures and put them in a pdf so that I could print it more easily and with less paper. Here it is.

    Thank you, that was a great idea--I like to condense mine & save paper too!

    You need background fabric, coordinating fabric, freezer paper, glue (washable, I use both glue stick and Elmer's School Glue), paper scissors and fabric scissors, pencil, ruler, and something to mark a circle.

    Step 1: Prepare freezer paper square. Draw the circle in the center. Make sure there is at least 1" between the edge of the circle and the edge of the square.
    Step 2: Cut the circle out of the paper.
    Step 3: Iron the freezer paper to the wrong side of the background fabric.
    Step 4: Mark the circle on the fabric.
    Step 5: Cut a circle out of the center, leaving about 1/2"
    Step 6: Snip the fabric around the perimeter to just before the pencil mark.
    Step 7: Using the fabric glue stick glue the fabric tabs to the paper. Pull them taught.
    Step 8: Cut a square of the coordinating fabric larger than the circle.
    Step 9: Dab Elmer's school glue (or glue stick) on the fabric tabs and lay the fabric square (fabric side down) centered over the circle.
    Step 10: Leave to dry.
    Step 11: Carefully pull the tabs off the freezer paper. Make sure to support both sides of the project so you don't distort the fabric or pull the tabs off.
    Step 12: Pull the freezer paper off the background fabric.
    Step 13: Attach the zipper foot to your sewing machine. Set the piece under the foot so the fabric square is on the bottom. Sew the two fabrics together as close to the drawn circle as the zipper foot allows. Please refer to the picture.
    Step 14: Trim the fabric square and attached tabs to about 1/4".
    Step 15: Press both sides. (Note: If you want the circle to be truly inset, press as shown. If you want the circle to be raised, press the seam into the circle.)
    I saw this being shown on Simply Quilts a few years ago. I will print your instructions out so I have them to show other people how it is done, if that is alright with you, MadQuilter?
