    It has two sizes of the Dahlia and is printed on card stock for cutting out the patterns. It was published in 1983 but you might still be able to find it. I did my own version with 12 rays instead of the 16 in the original pattern and 4 sections instead of the 7 in the original. My avatar is my version. I just checked Amazon and they have a used copy for $1.19 ebay also has it for $9.00
    The book has good clear instructions for making the qult.
    I just checked on amazon and they do have this book. A used one was just over a dollar.(plus shipping)

    I agree with Holice. I used this book to make a Giant Dahlia quilt years ago. It was one of the first quilts I'd ever made! The instructions are very clear and the card stock templates hold up well. At least with it adapted for a tree skirt, you won't have to worry about the centers matching .

    I don't like the colors in the one for sale, but have a gorgeous one done in yellows and blues. I think the overall look can be changed to look any way you wish by changing your color choices.
