Willow QAL: Week 4

Thursday, April 16, 2020

Hey hey!  Welcome to week 4 of the Willow QAL!
I love these Thursday posts!  Besides the fact that Thursdays mean a new QAL 
assignment, they're really the only thing helping me keep track of 
what day of the week it is!  Can you relate?

This week's get-to-know-you question is:
Are you more of an introvert or an extrovert?

I would say I'm a functioning introvert, ha!
I used to be a lot worse but I am getting better!  
I'm pretty quiet around people I don't know very well and in big groups 
but I'm a big goof around my family!
What about YOU?  Tell me in the comments below.

This week's assignment is to make 6 Hope Blocks.
Click HERE for the instructions.

Here's my test block.  The little squares and Half-Square Triangles finish at 1"
so this will be another good exercise in working with small pieces.
Just be sure to accurately cut and sew with a quarter inch seam allowance and you'll be just fine!

I got all my cutting done yesterday, as well as, 
my Half-Square Triangles and rectangle sections made (but not shown here).  
I'll finish sewing along with you guys this week!

I love seeing all the different colorways you guys are doing!
Keep sharing and tagging Jessica Dayon (@jessicadayon) and me (@gigis_thimble) on Instagram.
Be sure to use the hashtag #willowqal so we don't miss a thing!  

Don't forget to visit Jessica's blog HERE
to find out whether she's an introvert or an extrovert
and to see her Hope blocks!

Let me know if you have any questions.
Happy sewing!


  1. I'm definitely an introvert, so much so I don't even post my work! haha but I love quilting, it can be done by yourself or with friends, especially IG friends! Thanks for sponsoring this qal, this is my second one with you. I might get the courage to post my quilt when it's done....haha

  2. Definitely a reformed extrovert. I used to be the life of the party, now I am perfectly fine being the wall flower. LOL

  3. Love this block. And I would say I'm an introvert for the most part. I'm nervous and quiet around people I don't know and large groups. I tend to be that way even with family. As I get older it is getting easier to be out there. I figure what the heck. Maybe I'm more on the fence tittering. LOL


I ♥ to hear from you so please feel free to leave a comment. I read each one and try to respond as often as I can. Thanks so much for stopping by! ~Amber
