    Looks like you have gotten some sound advice. I think it is too easy to "fall" for all the great rulers out there. I agree that you should try to make the block without any speciality rulers and see if you think it would be worth the $$ for the ruler. Have fun!

    60 degree Clearview Triangle Ruler is the one I've always used. Here are instructions/video/prices.

    You certainly can make the block without any specialty rulers. However, this is a block that is used in many different quilt patterns and the special ruler makes it so much easier. If you like the look I say go for it and look for a ruler on sale. I haven't used the Eleanor Burns one, but have used the other two.

    Most of the time I use a couple of 6x24" rulers. I have some specialty rulers I very seldom use.

    Interesting. The "triangle in square" angle is not 60, it's 50 something... I'll have to look at that video when I get some time.
