Mola at Monday's Group

Mola cat

Some time ago, Ginette brought the idea to start a new project, learning the Mola technique. She had already done some nice pieces like this cute cat. One part of the group followed her with enthusiasm. I did not, being too busy with my baby quilts.

Mola cats

This technique comes from the Kuna women in Panama, who were traditionally using it for there costumes.
It is a reverse applique method consisting in using from two to seven layers of fabrics of different colors
sewn together.
