    Default Curved Rulers

    I want to make four 5" sqs. With a curved cut so that when put together I have a 10" sq. With a 8" circle in middle. Can anyone recommend the ruler I need to make the curve cut in each of the sqs.?

    Do you have a pic of what you want to do? That might help.

    To end up with the 10" square you are going to have to start with more than 5" squares because of the seams sewing the curves and the seams sewing the 4 squares together. I'm think you will have to start with at least 6" squares. Any circle ruler should work, you just have to decide where you need to place it to end up with the size ending circle you want.

    She basically is looking to make something similar to this, just pieced instead of appliqued.
