Sewing Curved Seams in a Quilt Block

Sewing curved seams in a quilt block is easy! Seriously. Maybe I've never been too afraid of them because I moved into quilting from garment sewing. When you think about it, sleeves, princess seams, necklines, etc. are all curved seams.

My daughter, Bonnie Christine, designs for Art Gallery Fabrics and is hosting a blog hop tour to spotlight her new line, Succulence. Of course, I was on the ready! The project I chose to make is a quilt that has been on my bucket list for a long time. I won't reveal that just yet, but I'll let you see one portion of the block that includes a curved seam. Actually, all the seams are curved, and I'm planning a video tutorial to show you all my tips and secrets for success!

So, it looks easy enough in the left photo, right? But placing them right sides together makes it look a little daunting. Watch the video below to see how this seam is sewn, with no pinning! My Baby Lock sewing machine has so many helpful features for this technique. With the touch of a button my machine will automatically raise the presser foot each time I pause, making adjustments to the seam line easy!

Follow me on Instagram and Facebook for updates on this project, and watch for the Succulence Blog Tour over on Bonnie's blog, beginning January 27 and continuing daily through February 19!

Thanks for visiting! Happy sewing, and God bless! Maxie
