I have started to follow Sew Slowly.  She just posted about some holes she is putting in her top.  This is very intriguing to me.  I love the way that quilts wear, so I love the idea of holes in a quilt top.  She has pretty clear photos of what she is doing.  She is hand working her quilt.  I decided to use her technique but by machine.

Here is a nice four patch that did not line up the way I would like. I prepared a square quite a bit larger than my intended hole with my stitch line already marked.

Then, I stitched around the circle and cut out the center. I then heavily clipped the seam allowance.

Now to decide what should go in the hole.
