Spectrum QAL Block 10 with Pam Voth: Delightful Collection by Riley Blake by Pam Voth February 1, 2022 written by Pam Voth February 1, 2022 245 I’m Pam Voth, and I’m back with Block 10 of the Spectrum QAL on QUILTsocial. I’m completing my blocks using fabric from the Delightful Collection by Riley Blake. Here are the full instructions on how to make Spectrum QAL Block 10. Pam’s Version of Block 10 from the Spectrum QAL Block 10 repeats the star design, so again I used dark fabric to highlight the design around the diamond shape in the center of the block. I used rectangles to frame the diamond design, flying geese to create the star shape, and the corners were a combination of half-square triangles and squares. I assembled the block by creating the center strip, and then added strips to either side and the final one-block rows to complete the design. Machine quilting the block allows me to highlight the diamond shapes that repeat throughout the block. I’ve decided to use stitch-in-the-ditch. When machine quilting, I always do my best to avoid cutting the thread as much as possible. Following the geometric design of the block will allow me to highlight the shapes and the colors and the star design that is part of the pattern. In the end, I’ll join my blocks using sashing. I’ve decided to use one color on the top and the matching color for the backing for the rest of my sashing. Stay tuned for Block 12 where I show you how I used sashing to complete my quilt. By the time you finish this QAL, you’ll have created lots of half-square triangles, flying geese, and diamonds, and you’ll have seen the many ways these go together to create different types of blocks. Blocks come alive with color, so don’t be afraid to be bold and creative in your color ways!

Cooking and baking, as well as knitting, had been an outlet for her creativity, but she was ready for a challenge. Pam's mom had been an expert sewer which scared Pam off. Retirement opened the door to explore quilting in the company of a retired friend, and they started their Wednesday mornings 'Quilt Social'. It's her goal to share her new found joy for quilting, a craft she never imagined being successful at, and in turn inspire others to give it a try. Pam is a lifelong learner, a beginner quilter and a great believer that connecting with others in a positive way makes all the difference in life. previous post FREE!
