Seminole patchwork is simple strip sewing and then cutting at a funny angle to give you some interesting shapes; most rulers have the 60 degree on them, so using your existing equpment shouldn’t be a problem.
Of course if you already have the 60 degree Diamond that is also an option.
You do need to be consistant with your sewing and take care when pressing as the edges can be a little stretchy.
As Jennie mentions we have done this style of workshop before: both in her Blazing Star block of the month series where Val gets to show off her jacket, and on the Ipad cover.

And we are off on our quilt adventure – row 1: sun/moon and stars on the night sky. Jennie shows you how to create these with the help of useful rotary cutting templates (which keep you safe and as well as accurate).
You get information on how to measure your strips of fabric. She talks about sea...
In this row Jennie uses one fabric for the sky and then a variety for the geese and fast rotary cutting of the shapes allows you to get to the fun bit of sewing really quickly.
Jennie talks up through the construction, the pressing, use of the thread-saver to help keep your patchwork neat as well...
