    To make the half log cabin go even faster I would make a larger centre square, go all the way around with your strips and cut it into 4 pieces like you would cut a D9P.
    You did quick

    Warm Wishes can look pretty impressive, yet is sooooooo quick and easy!

    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    those are nice ones on the site given. i saved it for myself too. I do like the BQ pattern mentioned by grma33. it takes 12 inch focus squares and has strips on two sides. very nice too.

    When I need a "quickie but a goodie" I always go to either "Turning 20" or "Yellow Brick Road". I can make a lap sized one in an afternoon so a larger size should be able to be done in a weekend or so. Please post pix of whatever you decide to do, OK?

    I was all set to do the half log cabin for my sister and just use the fabric she picked out for the back ... until I saw this... http://www.spotlight.com.au/inspirat...-garden-quilt/ I can use the large focal print and I have a few tan materials with shells and starfish on them that I can use... and I picked out a very dark navy blender material for the "black" I'm going to start cutting and piecing today. I'm going to do the larger one for her. Her fiance is a very tall guy so the small one would like like a toddler blanket next to him lol. I'll keep track of how long it takes to make it and share pics when I'm done.

    For my niece I definitely want to do the forest bricks pattern. I have a lot of leaf fabrics I had been collecting to make a leaf quilt out of leaf fabrics. I think I'll probably use those to make hers with... we'll see though. I am going to do my sister's first and then work on my niece's. I'm fortunate that I do have a little leeway with my niece's quilt. She is going to be moving back to the Jersey area this spring/early summer so we'll take a family vacation and go visit her and have a family reunion so I could hold out to make and quilt hers until I see her.... I'd rather get it done on time if at all possible. I've been notoriously bad for making things on time! I want to break that cycle.

    The trouble with warm wishes is: it uses only two fabrics. That probably means shopping. You want to use what you have. I really like the idea for making half log cabin blocks by starting with a larger center, putting on strips all around and then cutting it in quarters. What a wonderful idea.
