CALLING ALL QUILTERS!!!

So I really want to make THIS quilt
I found it over at Jahjong I love the fabrics, the style, the quilting; It is EXACTLY what I was looking for for my up and coming nursery. But I have NO clue how to do it. 

I need a pattern. Dimensions. Someone to tell me exactly how much of what to cut...Yeah. I'm incompetent. SERIOUSLY incompetent. 

So I need someone one...anyone...to find me a super easy pattern for someone who has about as much experience quilting as a racoon. I already know the fabrics - They are the Midwest Modern collection by Amy Butler.... now I just need a good ol' tutorial that'll help someone like me...do something awesome. 

Thank you! Y'all are awesome

The pattern is called a rail fence pattern. http://c-mann.suite101.com/how-to-strip-piece-rail-fence-quilt-blocks-a202059 I'm sure you could probably find a better tutorial but it's a start. Good luck!

I think that pattern is available FOR FREE on Amy Butler's Website. Just click free patterns and scroll down in the pop up. It's called Amy's Mid Mod Quilt. Even if it's not exactly the same it will give you directions on how to achieve the look. The above noter is correct about the kind of block this forms.

I am a wanna-be quilter and I have no skills (hello, Napoleon Dynamite), but I'm finding this tutorial pretty easy to follow:
