We had discussed this here recently. Currently it is not (directly) possible to create this quarter circle pocket, because there are the holes working as borders for the path algorithm.
As a workaround you have to use a base object without the holes, possibly in a different job.
You need at least FreeCAD 0.19.23300 to edit my current sketches.
