Spectrum QAL Block 3 with Pam Voth: Delightful Collection by Riley Blake by Pam Voth July 2, 2021 written by Pam Voth July 2, 2021 340 I’m Pam Voth, and I’m back with Block 3 of the Spectrum QAL on QUILTsocial. I’m completing my blocks using fabric from the Delightful collection by Riley Blake. Pam’s Version of Block 3 from the Spectrum QAL This block is an arrangement of 2½” squares so, if you carefully cut each square, the blocks go together more precisely. I put my block together in nine squares, just as I had done in Block 2. Using a fabric collection means that after you have labelled your colors using the suggested amounts of fabric in the instructions, your final block becomes a celebration of the complementary designs in each fabric. I used different fabrics from Paul Léger’s quilt, and carefully labelled each fabric according to the amount and the name of the fabric in the instructions, so that I could easily assemble the block. The center block of light grey fabric is complemented by the triangles of light blue. Pay careful attention to the corners and the every-other-fabric design of the center block – everything in the design is done to celebrate the colors and the half-square triangle design. For me, quilting is a combination of critical thinking and connection. I love creating my own blocks using my fabric scraps (quilting doesn’t always have to be about spending a lot of money), but this project is connecting me with other quilters online and helping me to continue to develop both my skills and my perspective as a quilter. Each of us who choose to quilt have a creative side that includes the ability to use shape and fabrics of any kind to create beautiful quilt blocks that can become anything from a table runner to a pillow to a bag for your books. Don’t hesitate – dig in and try something new! So, please take the time to connect with me, and share your version of Block 3 by posting it with #TheSewGoesOn. Be sure to check out my version of the Spectrum QAL Block 1 and Block 2 as well.

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 Completing the Growth Chart on the Brother Luminaire XP2 next post 2 easy ways to keep quilt rulers from slipping YOU MAY ALSO LIKE...
