The Importance of Centering When Transferring

Why? Why did I make the top of the circle so close to the top of the material, especially when I had so much more room below? Because this sampler isn’t really a circle—the big wagon wheel flower knocks this into more of a square—the size of hoop that fits the design leaves a gap at the top. This size hoop would have worked, if only I’d paid more attention when centering the design on the material..

This one would have worked too, but again, gap.

This one does fit all the way around, but it makes everything look too squished.

Well, time to switch shapes. And now I have three sizes of hoops waiting in the wings.
