Her er første quiltforsøk som jeg ikke ble fornøyd med. Det ble helt feil med mørkeblå tråd på det lyse stoffet.
Her er baksiden, og dette kunne blitt fint om jeg altså hadde brukt annen farge på tråden.
Her er hvordan jeg endte med på quilte dem.
Jeg leste litt om seminole slik det ble brukt i begynnelsen, og det ble slett ikke brukt i quilting, men i klær, og her er hva jeg fant om historien bak:
“Seminole quilting originated from the Seminole patchwork used for clothing by these southeastern Native Americans. In the late 1800s it was a long trip from the Everglades to trade for cotton cloth so women began sewing strips made from the fabric left on the end of the bolts to make what was know as "strip clothing". The sewing machine became available to these women around the end of the 19th century making it possible to use much smaller strips. Seminole designs grew to become even more elaborate and complex. Seminole patchwork was usually used for traditional dress including the women's long full skirts and big patchwork shirts worn by the men. Even today these garments are worn for special occasions. These beautiful Seminole patchwork patterns eventually become popular in quilt making as well.”
