***UPDATE April 2022*** The Sew Mama Sew website no longer exists, so I have published this tutorial on my website. You can find it here: Conquering Curves Connection Block Tutorial.
My latest block tutorial “Conquering Curves: Connection Block Design” is now available on Sew Mama Sew. This is a great project to gain confidence in curved piecing and can be finished as a mini or tiled into several fun, modern quilt designs. I hope you visit Sew Mama Sew to get more details!
Don’t miss out on today’s Jaftex 85th Anniversary blog post:

I’m having trouble finding the conquering curves tutorial…
It’s not up on SMS yet, but I’m looking forward to seeing it, especially tiled. I love the quilting you chosse to do on the mini version!
What a fun design with beautiful quilting. Love it!
Looks great! Still not up on SMS, but I’m looking forward to seeing the different versions!
Hope its up on SMS’s page soon as it looks like a great scrap buster project 🙂
How exciting Yvonne! Congrats on the SMS post (it’s up now) I just went over to check it out and your templates are lovely and I think you might’ve inspired me to give big circles a chance.
Was just in “conversation ” with various people about the difficulty in sewing circles
Well timed Yvonne
That is a great tutorial. You took something challenging and make it look easy!
Congratulations on a great tutorial!
Love all those curves, in all their varied layouts! This tutorial is definitely a keeper 🙂 Thanks, Yvonne!
Another fantastic tutorial, I love the versatility of the block, especially the jigsaw-type pattern, another to add to the must-try list, thank you! 😉
It’s gorgeous. I especially love the quilting in the negative space!
This is such a beautiful mini! I love the design and the quilting. Congrats on a wonderful Sew Mama Sew tutorial!
Congratulations on a great tutorial, at some point I’ll be tempted to give curves a go, and when I do I’ll be reading your post again!
This is great and really does make me want to try curves 🙂
Kind of late to the party but I am glad to read this post! I don’t have a fear of curves, having sewn garments for so many years but I really like the pattern you created for a mini. Just pinned it for future use.
Also, congrats on the SMS tutorial. Very cool!!
I want to take a look at the templates but the SewMamaSew website isn’t there anymore – could you post the larger half circle templates?
