Class Prep......Molas

I need to get some class samples done

for a Mola class I am leading next month:

You can follow along while I create the horse:

Molas consist of layers...

Authentic Molas use the reverse appliqué method...

In this 3 hour class we will use the fusible appliqué method

This technique involves filling all the available space

The horse shape is filled in...

now to fill in the background area

I am working with pre-fused fabrics and placing them

on black felt

I decided to use up the scrap fabrics all over the table

for the background fill

All the leftover snippets filled in the background nicely


I also had time to get this monkey mola done

Mola Class Samples:

I had fellow instructors over for Mola play days.

I will post about that soon!

 I left the Thread Shed tonight and walked over

to the house...

The flowers in front of the house are putting on

a show tonight as the sun sets...

Calla Lilies at sunset...

Magic happens when they are backlit from

the setting sun
