I continue to attend the sewing/quilting class, in a "moral support" catagory. The time spent in the back while the others teach has allowed me to work on another donation quilt. This is one where satin stitch zigzagging was taught. The group has acquired a Baby Accucutter and the women went bonkers using it. This is the result - 16" squares, all put together to form a cute kiddie donation quilt.
And then there are the very Panamanian molas ... Last weekend while in Panama City I went shopping. I was looking for some "learner" molas to put in the 4 corners of a t-shirt quilt of our Peace Corps experience in Panama. Alas, only found those that were regular appliqué while I wanted the reverse appliqué ones from Kuna Yali or San Blas. I did however, find a lady who is going to take a picture of a t-shirt design and make it into a mola for me, using the fabric that I bought for her from our limited choices here. If it works, I will have another made with fabric that I buy in the US. Also I want to learn how to make them myself. They are an interesting form of art - some whimsical,
