Quilt Block Patterns With Curves – Project Case Study Part 2

Another square block made up of a variety of small, rounded components can be seen hanging on the flannel wall here.

Even though it has curves, this patchwork block can be assembled in the same way as a standard patchwork block.

Due to the fact that I prefer to work in columns before moving on to rows, I decided to begin by identifying two columns. The solitary column will be attached in a separate step.

Before proceeding, fold over the fabrics on the right side of a pair of columns so that the right sides of the fabric are together.

Put these six sets of patches into your machine and chain stitch them together so they are all connected. It was not too difficult to maintain the matching of the ends due to the fact that these curves were gentle. When I sewed the longer and more curved pieces, I got bubbles and tunnels, but when I sewed the shorter and more straight pieces, I didn’t.

Match the edges of the patches using the same method as you did with the longer curved pieces, sew relatively slowly, and curve the pieces as they feed into the sewing machine.

After you have completed stitching the patches together, transport them to the flannel board and separate the pairs of patches. It is not necessary for you to cut the threads that are located between the patches. In addition, maintaining the thread connections will assist you in maintaining the order of the patches.

After that, you will need to sew these two sets together so that you end up with rows of four patches.

Again, you will be able to maintain the order of the patches if you continue to attach the threads that are located between the rows.

The final column of patches should be folded onto the rows, and then they should be stitched together. When you are finished, you should have 3 rows, and each row should have 5 patches that have been sewn together.

After that, you’ll need to stitch the rows together. The first thing you need to do is fold the row on top down onto the row in the middle so that the right sides are touching.

This is a fairly gentle curve that does not require a great deal of adjusting, despite the fact that it is a somewhat longer curve. In the same way that I would with any other quilt block, I was able to match the seams and turn the seam allowances so that they faced in opposite directions.

After the top seam has been stitched, open up the two rows, fold the bottom row up onto the middle row, and then stitch the seam that connects the two rows together.

This, too, is a gentle curve that does not call for very much in the way of adjustment. In this row, you should also be able to face the seam allowances in the opposite direction.

To eliminate the possibility of any cross-overs occurring, simply check the previous row to see how the pieces were stitched together.

After you’ve finished sewing, all that’s left to do is open the bottom row.
