Half log cabin string block

I visited my friend M yesterday and she showed me her collection of string quilts. She's made lots of these--at least five. Who want to make some of these blocks like this with me?

Let's  make 12.5 inch blocks with a yellow/orange/gold brick in one corner. Use wide and skinny strips log cabin style (but only along two sides) until it is big enought, square it off, and mail it to Jeanne. Leave a message below and I'll send you her address.

Post your results here. Leave a comment here if you want to play along.

Sorry, I need to pass on this one . . . great concept, just too many things active right now. Will be fun to watch though!

I'd be happy to make some blocks, but can't volunteer to put it together because of other projects I've got going. Let me know if you are moving ahead:

Like the others, I'd be happy to play along. Not to collect, though. I hope someone steps forward to use our blocks.

I'd love to be the block collector! I'll discuss things with Brenda.

Yay! Thank you, Jeanne!

And thank you, Carol, for that nudge the other day :)
