3-b.  Seminole Patchwork.

This is a 6 hour workshop

17” by 25 1/2” (43 cm by 64.5 cm).

Seminole piecing is an old form of piecing used by the Seminole. They are a Native American people originally from Florida.

The technique uses strips of fabric that are sewn together to form a band. This band is then cut apart into small units, which are then sewn together again to form the final band/strip.

To allow students to finish the top of this wall hanging, some pre-cutting before class is required.

Seminole strips can be used to make a wall hanging, see picture at right,

or sewn on a tote bag like you see below,

Or as borders around a quilt, see picture far below at right.
