I loved the ones I'd seen here on craftster, and I just had to make my own.
This wasn't too hard to do, but it was time consuming. I decided I didn't want a huge skirt, so I scaled it down so it's about a 3/4 circle. The squares are 4'x4', I used 65 of them for the bottom tier. I started gathering from the bottom up, purple to light purple to blue, instead of from the top down, and I think this made the gathering process much easier. What do you think? (As I hit "preview," a Jpop song called "Rainbows" started playing on my computer! Ha ha! )
