    ​I haven't made that one but if you had the half hexagon ruler for rotary cutting, it would work up pretty fast.

    I haven't made this one but I have made other of her patterns. They are well written and very easy to sew. And Julie Herman is accessible if you have questions.
    Got fabric?

    Looks like all 60 degree triangles, which you can sew in strips and then join. Shouldn't be too bad.

    I haven't but if I ever make this pattern I would starch my fabric heavily.
    You will be dealing with lots of bias edges with this pattern. Otherwise,
    it should be fairly easy. Julie Herman had a quilt along for this pattern
    a few years ago with different layouts. Check her website.

    I have thought about doing this quilt and studied it. It is made like the one block wonder, using 6 60degree triangles. The triangles are cut from a 2 strip unit. As I said, this is how I have figured it out. The only thing is that after you cut the 6 triangles from the strip, you might also have 6 opposite triangles left that you could use for another quilt. Hmmmm. I am getting the bug to go try this. Good luck. Ann )

    I haven't made it but it is a pretty pattern. I saw it in a baby quilt once and oh my it was gorgeous.

    I haven't made this one but I don't think it would be too difficult. I would say go for it.
