This week in the Modern Quilt Block Series we are sewing up the Slats block. The rectangles in this block create rhythm, and fun lay out options. Follow along as I continue designing and sharing a new block pattern each week!


Don’t stress out over all the rectangles – it’s still simple to sew! Double-check your 1/4″ seam allowance, before you get started for the best results with this block. Creating interest without overwhelm is always welcome in our quilting projects!

Take a few minutes to watch the video for my simple construction and pressing 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 Slats 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!
