Sew in the order shown below. Press the seams away from the narrow
dark strips. Cut the strip vertically into 1-1/4" segments.
Piece into pairs of pieced and solid strips as shown below. Step the
solid strip down 1/2". Next piece the pairs together so that the lower
dark strip of one pair lines up with the upper dark strip of the next pair.
Cut a piece of masking or correction tape about 3 inches long. Mark
several half inch marks. Tape on bed of machine in front of the needle
to use to measure the offset on this strip.
You will find that it is easier to sew with the solid strip on the
top since it is narrower. You will also want to be sure to hold the seams
out of the way when you sew or you will have some wonderfully precise but
unwanted pleats in your strip.
Straighten the side edges as described in lesson two.
Mark a line 1/2" from the to of the pattern as shown above. Add a
bridging strip to the top and bottom of the Seminole Strip using this mark.
Trim any excess ragged edges and press to the bridging strip.
You can really change the look of this strip by exchanging the colors.
Use a light for the dark and the look will be truly different.
