In January 2018, I saw the "In Praise of Molas - Fumiko Nakayama" exhibit at the Tokyo Great International Quilt Festival. That year Queenie and two other stitchers challenged themselves to complete a mola project. Her finished bag can be seen here.
Since then, I've wanted to make a mola. The stitch group has decided to do this as our next project. This week I have begun my project. I chose three colors to begin - purple, yellow, and blue.
I sketched a little fish as a sort of pattern.
Using my white sashiko pencil, I traced it onto the fabric.
The white lines will be my cutting lines so I basted around them.
