Before I collected fabric and sewing notions, I collected Molas. These reverse applique panels are made in the San Blas region of Panama by the Kuna Indians. The Indians made these textiles to decorate their clothing, so many that you find are worn and faded somewhat. The detail on these pieces is amazing. Layers of colorful fabrics exactingly cut and hand stitched to create geometric designs, birds, animals, fish, and more. Most have hand embroidered details as well. You should see how tiny these stitches are. Amazing.
