Sewing In Circles?

At Frond Design Studios we have several different sample makers.  One seamstress, Miss Mary really has a thing for circles.  She has designed many a quilt with appliquéd circles.  I always gave her a hard time about it because I always considered them fussy and difficult – and she’s fun to tease.

Well recently I decided to recreate one of her designs and was pleased to find a cool and simple tool in my sewing drawer which made the circles simple and fun!  So fun in fact that I filmed a video tutorial for the technique!

You can check out the Well Rounded quilt featured here:

I love the BERNINA Circle Maker tool!  What’s your favorite technique for making circles?
