I did stay stitch the big curves, just outside the solid seam line. It provided some stability while doing lots and lots of pinning. The triangle circle inside the corner curves fit very well, as did stitching the large interior circle. It feels good to have that much all together and fitting. :)

Carolyn, that's exactly what I did because there is alot of bias on that curve and I actually left a big margin on the outside of the corners, just in case. When you stay-stitch use a little longer stitch (3 or 3.5) so that if by chance it doesn't line up after sewing the corners onto the circle you know where you need to make an adjustment. A little more stitchin' but it's worth it. Just my opinion.

Wondering if it would be a good idea to stay stich the BIG curve inside the corner pieces before trimming to dotted line? :?:
I'm ready to trim, but wanting to be sure the fabric doesn't stretch out of shape. Any thoughts?
