    Help with the "on point" part of the half log cabin quilt

    Boy, am I needing help with the "on point" part of the half log cabin. Is there a tutorial or something that could help me?

    Sorry, I don't understand the question. Can you post a picture? Do you mean that you are putting half log cabin blocks on point?

    on point just means set on the diagonal - turn your block just once to the left.
    It's a diamond shape rather than a square

    Are you referring to the "setting triangles" at the end of the row when the blocks are set on-point?
    That they would have the design of half a full log cabin block?
