Thank you john !
Your parts works well too ! What parameters have you changed so that the pattern features are merged with the curve quilt ?
There are 2 Pattern types, Standard Pattern type & Geometry Pattern. You selected Geometry Pattern which only patterns the geometry selected & not the associated merge feature too. Use a standard Pattern.
