Seminole Patchwork with Eva Veltkamp

My series of posts from Quilting on the Beach was interrupted by our local Quilt Show, but I have one more class to share with you. It was Seminole Patchwork taught by Eva Veltkamp.

Do you think Seminole Patchwork will make a comeback? Solids are modern; miniatures are modern. The only thing that might hold it back is the amount of work involved. This is not in the “Make a Quilt in a Day” category.

Here was our goal: one rainbow band for a pillowcase. eva1

As part of the class kit, we were given a treasure. It is a book by Cheryl Greider Bradkin that dates back to 1980 and contains 61 different designs. We tried one of the easier pattern first. eva7

Then it was on to piecing seven strips… eva9.jpg

Here are a couple more samples Eva had to show the class. I think Seminole Patchwork has potential. Maybe not on a tie. Or a belt. Nor an apron. Or sleeves and hems. But somewhere, I will find a reason to use some of the patterns found in the book.

This brings an end to my Quilting on the Beach series. I have many projects to finish – and to start. My goal is to have them done by the end of the year at which time I should have enough for a trunk show!
