Perfect Circles

I wanted my appliqued circles on my "Noelle Table topper"
 to be perfectly round so I cheated and stitched
light weight iron on interfacing to them.....
You need to keep the right side of the fabric and the shiny side of
 the interfacing together and stitch around the drawn line......
Trim and turn right side out and finger press around the curved edge.... 
This gives you a perfect circle with all edges enclosed that
can then be ironed to the base of the table topper....

 I repeated the process with the pieced centre....
 I love the look of needle turn but get frustrated if I
can't get a nice line so I think this is a great solution.....
 I then ironed the 3 layers together.....
I now just need to finish stitching them down....
 Until next time, Happy Stitching

Good thinking Kate! Do you think it would work (or have you tried it) on smaller pieces?

Table Centre looks great too!
