Seminole Strip Exchange

I've been busy piecing Seminole Strips for my "Blockheads" group exchange. Here are the rules: 1. Choose fabric with colors that you like and give a piece to each participant 2. Select a Seminole pattern 3. Make the chosen Seminole strip for each person, using colors from their fabric sample. Here are the strips I made, the inspiration fabric is shown on the far left:

My fabric sample and strip is the first one shown above; orange background with a green and blue cross. The fabric has many colors, all very bright.It has been a long time since I pieced a traditional block. There was a lot more precise measuring and stitching than I remembered!We actually did the exchange earlier today. I'll take some photos tomorrow and show you all of the strips I received. I knew my fabric was bright, but I was surprised just how bright the finished strips were. They are great and I love the way they turned out.

Judy, I remember how much fun this exchange was to unveil when I did it with the Blockheads. Some folks were shocked at the interpretation of their inspiration fabric, but it all came together. Looking forward to seeing the strips you received.
