Just want to add a couple of notes

The creases should be made on the grain of the fabric, especially if you have geometric or directional fabric.

Tacking the circles together should be done with very small stitches, it's almost impossible to remove this tacking when finished so it's best if it's as invisible as possible then it can be left in.

You can layout your circles in any pattern, but you must keep to the over's and under's as in the directions, if they don't alternate it won't work.

Right quick question...when we are securing the circles to each other is it a small stitch at the top and one at the bottom where the circles lines meet?

I'm pleased you like it, I was worried you'd think yesterday was a waste of time.

Yes, I guessed right! I have seen a gorgeous apple core of Alison's before. Now to work out how to assemble it.

Claire you use the creases as the marks to tack them together, at the top and bottom where they meet.

This would be so much easier if you were here and I could show you.

Margaret, if you get the rows right it should all lock together.
