This week in the Modern Quilt Block Series we are sewing up the Chimera block. This block includes a miter seam across a couple of strips. Follow along as I continue designing and sharing a new block pattern each week!


Don’t let that mitered seam slow you down! It’s really simple, and adds so much dimension to your blocks. Once you make a mitered seam, you’ll see just how simple they are. And this technique can be used for making your borders too!

Take a few minutes to watch the video for my simple construction tips, and step-by-step instructions for making this unique block. And the layout options are so fun! Even on its own, this block makes some great quilt tops, and I can’t wait to see more of them in fabric!

This week the Chimera block is free, next week it will be available for purchase in my shop. 

Pin now, sew later

Save to your favorite quilting boards for inspiration when you need it!

I’m so glad you are here, thank you for stopping by. 

I hope you have a creative week! 


PS – I’d love for you to share this with your quilting friends online – thanks!
