I promise to add dimensions to the strips in the directions below.. but I wanted to at least post pictures for you to see... More soon, I promise!
I have this little side business... I make custom kitty quilts. It sounds funny, but they are now all over the US and the world. Last summer I made this one for my girl, Jasmine. I love graphic designs, and Seminole patchwork has always held a certain appeal. I sewed about 7 pieced bands, but used only 5 in her quilt. Here are some pictures of how three of them are put together.
This is a traditional Seminole band. The black and white strips are about 2" wide, the turquoise one is 1-1/2". After the strips are sewin together, they are cut crosswise into 1-1/2" pieces.
Then every other one is rotated, and the strips are set at a 45 degree angle to make the design shown below.
This next band is not a traditional Seminole design
