    Sorry I didn't see these questions before Christmas, but you should be able to find this ruler at your local quilt shop. I've also see them on ebay and saw one once here on the quilt board for sale by a member.

    If I wanted wider wedges, would I cut on a fold? I'd like to make one with 10 wedges; how would I figure the size of the wedge? Would the special ruler mentioned work?

    It has to add up to 360 degrees to make a circle. The ruler I use is a 9 degree ruler and takes 40 wedges. If you want to do only 10 wedges, 9 degrees is too small, so this ruler will not work.

    angiecub, I love this tree skirt and used your tute when it first came out on QB to make two of my own. Has anyone out there tried adjusting the pattern to make a larger tree skirt? My daughter wants one that is 70-72" in diameter instead of 50". I would want to add more fabric rows to each panel, but can't figure out how wide each new strip should be to increase to a 35-35" panel. Your ideas or thoughts will be greatly appreciated!

    So beautiful. Thanks so much for the tutorial. I would like to make one with some gold lame' just here and there in the skirt and then make a gold lame' ruffle around the edge instead of binding.

    So glad someone reposted this. I have been wanting to make a new tree skirt. Now to find that ruler. I also found a tute that uses a regular ruler.

    Check Cheryl Phillips' web site. She has some free patterns using her templates and rulers. Don't remember if there is one for that ruler.

    Here is one I copied from the Moda website when it first came out and put in a notebook, now cannot find the notebook, went in search of it online. This is more of a table cover than tree skirt.

    I don't know if anyone told you, but that ruler comes in a package with patterns for use printed right on it. When I made my first quilt with it, I used a 56" background fabric and glued the points down with Elmer's school glue, then hand blind stitched it down. Just be sure your Dresden plate lies flat because it will not 'quilt out'. (Mine started as a volcano and I stitched and stitched until it was flat. Now I have a permanent line on my machine to follow for accuracy.)
    If you always do, what you have always done, The results never change. Change is the wings you give yourself.
