(1) Basic seminole patterns created from simple strips sewn, cut and re-pieced:
(2) Slightly more complex strip piecing:
(4) Alternating strips:
(5) More alternating strips:
(6) Introducing bleached fabric:
(7) In this sample I played with mirror images, but this time with fabric. Having had difficulties with this technique when playing with papers, I found working with fabric easier. Four strips were pieced in the ratio of 3:1:2:3, which was then folded in half, and cut at angles, then sewn together to create a zig zag pattern.
(8) The next complex block was created from 4 strips put together in a ratio of 2:1:1:2. This was then cut into 2" and 1" lengths, and then re-pieced in 2:1:1:1:2:1:1:1:2 alternate arrangement.
(9) The following sample combined a number of seminole strips explored in the samples above. Most of the seams were left raw and front facing seams, frayed.
