Hola Mola

NEW THIS WEEK - January 12th, 2011
 

Hola Mola
 

Free Project Instructions!

One of the most magnificent and beautiful styles of textile art is found among the Kuna women of Panama. This style is instantly recognizable by its bright and vibrant colors, intricate geometric patterns, fine and delicate detail. Yep, you guessed it: mola.

New designs this week celebrate the artful appeal of mola with bold and beautiful colors, subjects, and styles. Traditional mola designs focus on flowers and wildlife found in Panama, with single-run quilting designs that echo each block. And, these new quilting designs are only $1 each!

Along with traditional artwork, you'll find a contemporary twist, too. We firmly believe that no design series is complete without robots and cupcakes.

Combine your favorite embroidery designs and fabrics in this roomy, useful tote. Click here for free project instructions!
