Conquering Curves: Connection Block Design

***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!

    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.

    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?

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
