This week in the Modern Quilt Block Series we are sewing up the Merge block, perfect for your scrap bin. You could definitely make this block with less fabrics, but I thought we should try to use up some of the scraps I’ve accumulated the last couple of months. I hope you are as inspired as I am!


With straight forward piecing and the chance to include scrap fabrics that you can’t bear to part with make this block a winner for beginners and experienced quilters alike. How do you envision making it? Have you been able to buy any new fabrics lately?

In the video I have shared my tips for easing the extra length into a block without puckers, and a few of my favorite layout options to date. Watch the video to get started, and let me know which layout option inspires you.

Each new block makes me excited about the opportunities for customization and creativity. There are so many great options to create! I hope you are inspired to sew today.

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

Pin now, sew later

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

I hope you have a creative week, I can’t wait to see what you make!
