For my project, I researched the molas of the Kuna Indians of Panama, and created a mola panel of my own that is a blend of Canadian imagery and Kuna techniques. I call it "Northern Dance".
The panel is 22" x 16", and, except for the background fabric piecing, is sewn entirely by hand. I enjoyed the process, but am really glad I started over Christmas! It took a while to complete. Mind you, it was very relaxing, and allowed for much thought and contemplation, especially as the snowflakes whirled and danced around our house.
