Preparation for the holidays isn't complete without contemplating the decorating of the Christmas tree. This year, turn your attention to the base of the tree and add Cindy Mccoy's stunning "Golden Ratio Tree Skirt" to your collection of holiday decor. The size of the stars in each concentric ring were designed based on The Golden Ratio, or phi. Phi is a geometric ratio of length to width considered to be aesthetically most pleasing to the eye. It has been used in art and architecture since the time of the ancient Greeks. In Cindy's tree skirt, The Golden Ratio was employed to define the size of the star pentagon centers and star points. The careful cutting from the templates and inset piecing required in this project earn it a higher skill level. However, Cindy's wonderful directions with detailed diagrams also make this a doable project for advanced beginners ready to expand their skills. So don't hesitate to give it a try. You will be thrilled with the results! ***** IMPORTANT ***** As of January 1, 2015 I am not able to sell my patterns to the following EU countries because of the VAT law: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the UK. *********************** BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY A plump eighth measures 11" x 18".
