I started out by cutting a piece of freezer paper the size of the finished block (6 inches).
I then folded the freezer paper in half twice.
I used my son's compass to make two arcs, the first was at 2-1/2 inches, the second at 2 inches.
I then cut the arcs out (remember it is like cutting a snowflake, you don't want to have the folds on the top). I then had a 5-inch circle.
I ironed the freezer paper to my fabric and cut it out, also cutting the inside curves to make it easier to press.
I then folded my background fabric in half twice marking the center.
At last I lined up my circle on the background fabric centering it with the folds.
Here is my finished block. It is number 154 of 366 and it is a 6-inch block. Like I said before it isn't perfect, but I am really happy with it. I think I'm most happy with the fact that I figured out how to get a circle that worked. I can't wait to use this block, as I know I'm going to smile when I see it, always remembering that I actually figured it out on my own! :) Happy Stitching!! --Kristen
