JEWEL TONE MOSAIC WALLHANGING by Margaret Wood
Pattern with detailed instructions for 51"HX46"W wall hanging inspired by the mosaic jewelry of the Pueblo Indians.

Price: $6.00 plus $1.00 postage

Historically, the jewelers crafted mosaic earrings, pendants and bracelets out of turquoise, white clam shell, and black jet. Modern Indian jewelers have begun using ivory, coal, lapsis lazuli, sugilite and onyx used in mosaic pieces. The Jewel Tone Mosaic Wall hanging was conceived as a demonstration segment created for HGTV's Simply Quilt program. The center section of the wallhanging is composed of wedge-shaped pieces. It is surrounded by a two-tone border and an outer border of squares and narrow strips. All of the fabrics mimic stone colors and have a sheen to simulate the polished surfaces in mosaic work.

62 1/2"X 48"W wall hanging.

Price: $6.00 plus $1.00 postage.

Seminole Patchwork Sampler Wallhanging Pattern incorporates 6 different designs into a rectangular wallhanging. The origin of Seminole patchwork, also known as strip patchwork, is somewhat sketchy. The Florida Seminole started creating their distinctive patchwork clothing styles in the 1800's. Early clothing styles for both men and women consisted of multi-colored horizontal bands of trade cotton with one or two simple bands of appliquéd or pieced strip patchwork. In the late 1800's and early 1900's, with the introduction of hand-cranked and foot treadle sewing machines, a patchwork explosion occurred. Women started using many bands of complicated patchwork strips in full skirts for the women and jackets for the men. While originally made for personal use, the fiercely independent Seminoles started increasing the production of patchwork items as a means of earning income by selling to tourists. Margaret Wood's Seminole Patchwork Sampler was conceived as a demonstration project created for an HGTV's Simply Quilts episode, titled. "Native American Quilting: (show #447). The pattern discusses assembly with sashing and quilting options.
