The Mola Quilt

This quilt will be shown at the San Diego Quilt Show next month. It has several molas made by the natives of the San Blas Island off the coast of Panama. It is reverse applique with intricate embellishments of fabric.

There is no point in looking for the quilting on this quilt, nothing shows. I quilted in the black areas inside each mola. Each channel was less than 1/8" wide. Don't try that without EdgeRider wheels.

If you are at the San Diego Quilt Show, look for this one.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
