Overview

Developed by the Mikasuki-speaking Indian women of southern Florida around the end of the 1800s, Seminole patchwork has become a highly visible art form and genuine symbol of Seminole culture.
Distinguished by its bright, mosaic-like patterns, Seminole patchwork is created by sewing cloth strips into long, multicolored bands. These are then cut into segments, rearranged, and sewn into geometric patterns that produce a multitude of effects when combined into lengths of fabric.
This profusely illustrated guide to Seminole patchwork — one of the first books on the subject — offers complete instructions and hundreds of clear, easy-to-read diagrams for making Seminole bands. These can then be assembled into skirts, wall hangings, pillows, mats, tote bags, book covers, belts, and many other attractive and practical items. In addition, the authors provide Native American craft, a glossary of important terms, an attractive display of patchwork patterns, and detailed instructions for reading assembly diagrams. Illustrations of attractive contemporary quilts and wall hangings as well as comments on traditional and modern clothing complete this informative and useful guidebook.
