Bold patterns are the important part in this quilt. Seminole is based on a design that the Florida Indians developed over 100 years ago using western fabrics. I first saw Seminole in a old quilting book my partner's friend Sally Ann gave me earlier this year.
Seminole is a strip piecing project, I thought looked fun to try using my newest tool, the rotary cutter. It allows me to cut strips of fabric very precisely. The tricky part is working with fabric strips recut on the bias (against the grain) and then reassembling them into the lines of pattern you see here. I took detail shots to show how the strips look up close.
