I'm a cheater. And I'm not afraid to admit it.
Yes, sometimes I look for the easy way out and bend the rules a bit. In this case, I'm talking about the circle template for Spot On. It requires enlarging. I don't mind. I'm lucky to have a printer/fax/copier thingy here at home.
But I was thinking more about my little helper and making tracing easy for her. So instead of making a template as per the pattern, I rooted around my kitchen for something round. The best I could do was a plate that's about 1/4" smaller than the actual template.
It was so easy for her to use. (Yes, that's a Laura Ashley saucer!)
I don't think the quilting police will come and arrest me because the circles are a smidgen smaller than the pattern said.
But in case they do - and you'd like to make my prison stay more comfortable - I like Ghirardelli brownies (with chopped walnut, if you don't mind), Irish Breakfast tea and Japanese craft books & magazines.
Thanks in advance.
