Smile Learning Curved Piecing

I had such a great response to my thread (Not afraid of curved piecing anymore) I thought I'd share some pattern links I've been saving.
While jumped in feet first with New York Beauty blocks, the following projects would be a much better intro to the world of curved piecing and get gradually more intricate/difficult.

So what are you waiting for?! You can do it!

1) Melon Patch wall hanging - large pieces, gentle curves

2) Winding Ways wall hanging - gentle curves, more pieces per block

3) Glorified Nine Patch - two options

(a) Make a large block & cut down to size with template - Curved Nine Patch pattern

(b) Cut out each pattern piece separately - Connecting Threads table runner tutorial

4) New York Beauty - a nice big 12" block

5) Pickle Dish - ambitious but totally doable!

p.s. - if you try any of these (even just one block) please post a pic here - it's all good!

I have tried the improved nine patch and found it very easy. Thank you for all the other links. The new york beauties are also on my bucket list.

Thanks. Will try for sure. it's only as hard as you make it. I go over the directions a couple times and then try a sample block. Works for me.
