    Does anyone make modern molas? Molas are reverse applique made uniquely by the people of the San Blas Islands in Panama.
    I wonder if anyone has continued the art.

    Wasn't there a display of their work in the San Jose, CA area a while back?

    Cathy Miller, The Singing quilter, teaches a class on modern molas when she visits guilds. Check out her web site:

    I saw some at a quilt show in Somers, NY in May 2009. I don't remember the vendor's name, but they were beautiful.

    I was able to buy a few molas on ebay a few years ago and made a quilt with them. Check out molas there. I think they have a good selection at reasonable prices. Good luck.
