Doll Quilt Swap 6

I'm participating in the Doll Quilt Swap again. I have selected fabrics, soft blues and browns with a white on white.
I have decided to do some Seminole Patchwork bands. Here are some possibilities: (you can click the pictures to enlarge.)
These are all one strip bands, meaning the same strip is used in each design. In the top band above, alternating cut pieces are simply rotated. The second band, with the brown squares is just like the rows of "dots" I used in my Alphabet Sampler Quilt.In this band, the strips are cut at a 45-degree angle and then offset and sewn together.This band is just like the rows of dots except there are five colored strips instead of one. So far, this is my favorite. I need to make a couple more bands.

Yes, these aren't really "my" colors, but I am making this for my swap partner. It's a secret, so I can't give out more information than this.

I like the 5 strip row the best too. You have PERFECT steps of value in it.

I love your fabrics! Very elegant. And your seminole piecing looks great! I think your 5 strip row is my favorite.

You're making me want to try some seminole piecing again - it's been a long time since I've done any.

The Seminole looks great! The fabrics have the perfect contrast for the technique.
