In this three-hour class students will begin work on a small mola project while using the back basting technique. As in traditional South American Molas, the class project will be stitched in solid fabrics using a combination of reverse appliqué, layered appliqué, and embroidered accents. With all their radiating layers of colors, they can become thick and difficult to baste by hand - learn how Barb uses the sewing machine to accomplish the basting step. Students will machine baste then begin hand appliquéing radiating layers of color, echoing a simple flower motif. Class includes a showing of authentic molas. Supply list
