Mola pictured with Indian gypsy quilt that I purchased in Rome…sigh.

Tools of the trade.

Pillow made from a Mola textile. Molas are made by the Kuna, an indigenous people of Panam√° of the San Blas Islands.  The Kuna technique has inspired by own needlework.The fabrics are appliqued or reversed appliqued and then cut away to reveal the layers underneath.
