Wow, nice work!  That's a lot of time in a little space!

Cute!  I bet she loves it.

There are a couple of good resources out there for this pattern.

I go to Quilter's Cache first thing; she specializes in blocks but has a HUGE database she shares.  This is an individual block, but you could size it up or just keep going with additional rows:

Here's a tutorial:

If you haven't started yet, Jaybird Quilts did a quiltalong on this last year.  Her cutting instructions are dead accurate and worth reading:
Read all of the quiltalong posts and she'll walk you right through it, start to finish.

My own advice:  I found it easiest to use my own 6x24 ruler and the 60-degree mark.  Also, don't mix-and-match too much:  the nicest results for this style of quilt (in my opinion) come from a single block done in coordinated fabrics.

Jelly rolls are convenient but they're pricey and I've had so-so luck with the accuracy of their measurements, so you may as well cut your own 2.5-inch strips.  If you have a rotary cutter and mat, and you take your time, you'll be fine.

There's a lovely freebie at Moda Bake Shop that sounds like what you're seeking:

and Block Central has a pretty pieced pattern where several blocks make a wreath:

So cute!  Love your quilting.

Athena - as long as you can break it down into rows, or columns, or even giant blocks, you can assemble it without doing a lot of set-in corners.

I'm with the others - your piecing and color/fabric choices are terrific!  Nicely done.

That's a terrific first quilt!  Your other pieces are great too, what a nice picnic set.  I like your new sampler top too.  I think you're already addicted!
