TOPIC: Using Accuquilt to cut the big circle in month 8

Then I fused the fusible web on the fabric, and cut the 4 squares:

I placed the square on the die where I marked it with the sharpie pen:

Using Accuquilt to cut the big circle in month 8 15 Aug 2013 21:43 #108660

Here is my trick for using accuquilt for that big circle in the flower and still use fusible only on the edge.
I used the "Rose of Sharon #2" die, and the circle is 1 1/2 inch in diameter, which is just a tiny bit smaller than the flower's circle (1/16th around).
But that's fine for me!

Using a sharpie marker, I marked the foam where a 2 1/4 square would be, centered on that circle:

I then traced 4 squares measuring 2 1/4 inches on the fusible web, and marked the center with straight lines across, and I traced the circle using that famous Template:

I cut out the "inner" circle, leaving enough just in case the fabric would shift:{!-- ia0 -->DSC07609.JPG{!-- ia0 -->

Can't upload more pictures, so I'll continue in the next post!
