The Mystery ...
OK maybe the Internet...googled and googled but NOTHING. Then I tried Ebay hoping for some inspiration and FINALLY found what I liked! I was ready to bid but something told me to email my friend C back in UT. (I was in Texas at the time)
"Can you help me figure out how to make this?" I wrote her.
"Sure" she says, "it's just 60 degree star! And by the way I think I have a pattern for a similar one!"
And sure enough she did but the blocks were only a 12" size and I knew that the skirt would end up too small (to me) so after I got home and after Thanksgiving she walked me through how to enlarge a template...not as hard as I thought...and over the course of 3 days I made the skirt and I just love it!
DD loves traditional Christmas colors and even with all the problems I made for myself by not cutting accurately, in the end it turned our great and I think I want to make one for me! LOL Don't know if the family will let me NOT use the old skirt I made years and years ago from one of those preprinted pre-quilted panels. Hummmm Maybe I should take a picture of it and "pass it on"! LOL
