My Favorite Curved Quilt Patterns

My Favorite Curved Quilt Patterns

Hey there, Quilt Scouts! This month we dove into the art of sewing curves, mastering the technique that adds lots of fun (and a little complexity) to our quilt projects. Now, it’s time to put those skills to the test and conquer curves with confidence! To help you on your quest, I’ve curated a selection of my favorite curved quilt patterns, ranging from confident beginner to advanced. Each pattern offers a unique opportunity to hone your curve-sewing skills while creating some stunning quilts that are sure to impress. There’s something here for everyone. So let’s dive into these fun and unique quilt patterns and earn that “Conquer Curves” badge together!

Confident Beginner

Solar Phases by Bookends Quilting

Solar Phases is marked as advanced beginner, though the pillow and baby sizes are more so intermediate given the smaller curves. If this is your first time making curves, you may want to try a practice block first to get comfortable with it.

Metamorphosis by Lo & Behold Stitchery

Metamorphosis is a block-based butterfly pattern that uses traditionally pieced half circles. This pattern is great for displaying large cuts of your favorite prints, or to display bold pops of color.

Looperette by Miss Make

Looperette is a smaller-block version of the Miss Make Looper pattern, a choose-your-own-path style quilt made with modular blocks that can be rearranged in any direction to create a custom design.

Memi’s Lemons by Cotton and Joy

Memi’s Lemons is a fun and fresh modern quilt pattern, inspired by a grandmother’s love. Memi’s Lemons is a nod to my grandmother, Memi, and her beloved lemon tree that she had in the front yard of our home. Using block rotation and reflection, this pattern is full of fun whimsy. Memi’s Lemons is the perfect pattern for confident or advanced beginner sewists ready to try curves.

Florally by Heck Yes Sew Co.

The Florally quilt pattern was inspired by my love for nature, especially wildflower hikes with my family.  It features flower blocks combined to make a larger floral motif.  With traditional piecing, Florally provides a lot of practice for sewing curves.  The skill level is listed as intermediate, but if you’ve sewn curves before, then it’s very approachable for a confident beginner.  I can’t wait to see what you create!

Spring Equinox by Taralee Quiltery

Spring Equinox is a modern, bold, and retro-feeling pattern. It’s a great pattern to fulfill your love of curves and is considered an intermediate skill level project. The layered colors affect is achieved by using 10 different tones that group into five pairings of a dark and light version of a single tone.

Funkadelic by The Retro Quilter

Funkadelic is a fun and funky quilt pattern that is sure to wow you as you put it together. This quilt pattern was inspired by a mid-century modern rug I have had on my ultimate treasures list forever now. Since I know it’s unlikely to find this rug, I decided to bring this magical vibe into a quilt pattern. This pattern is versatile in two different colorways, bringing retro quilty goodness to both versions. Funkadelic is super cool, and each one made will definitely have that jaw-dropping charm. Funkadelic is an advanced pattern due to the amount of smaller curves and the number of half circles to sew. All half-circle blocks are designed to have some wiggle room for trimming.
