Marking circles the lazy way


Big news: I was recently at Craftsy! Here's a sample from that class (which I can't wait to tell you about!!) And a little gee-whiz snapshot of a technique I used to get those nice open circles. 

I took the cap from my spray baste and pressed it on the fabric while twisting, marking a perfect circle so easily! For small things I usually prefer impression marking (like with a Hera marker) to markings that I have to remove, and this seemed like something I should share with you all. Happy stitching!

Ingenious! I wish I had thought of this when I was doing some hand quilting of circles recently! Now I just need to remember it for next time!
