I use the Merge Blocks Tool regularly for drafting tricky blocks in parts, or changing blocks quickly without calculating different snap settings and resizing and relocating sets of lines.

So for this challenge I wanted to try some different uses for the Merge Blocks Tool.

First, I explored the possibilities to come up with special settings for a sampler quilt.

I merged pieced and applique blocks into suitable background blocks, and decided I liked the version with the Baton Rouge Block as the setting block best.

The block in the lower right corner was created by merging blocks twice.

I also merged one block into one of the diamonds instead of in the center square of the receiving block (top center block).
