1. June - One Monthly Goal with Elm Street Quilts

    June is typically busy for me with many activities other than quilting (cycling, gardening, golf and floating about in the pool). So joining in on the One Monthly Goal Challenge will be a great way to ensure that I get at least some quilting done, I hope.

  4. Molas

    The mola in my avatar is a very traditional design, incorporating geometric shapes and animals and using a multitude of colours. It was made by a Guna woman. I have a photo of her below, with some of her other work hanging in the background. If you look closely you will see that she has a mola sewn into her top, again, very typical dress of the Guna ladies.

    In the photo, the molas hanging on the left hand side are 'touristic' molas - made to appeal to the tourists, the colours, ...
