Seminole Piecing

Seminole design was developed by the Seminole Indian tribe of Florida primarily for embellishing clothing. Dorothy Hanisko, in the introduction of her book, points out that the same techniques used to create one-of-a-kind clothing can be used to create one-of-a-kind quilts. By choosing four or five Seminole designs and using strips of varying widths and colors between the bands of those designs, dramatic results can be achieved.
