The Mola design book by Caren Caraway( Book )

3 editions published between 1981 and 1986 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Molas, generating increasing interest among artists and art galleries, craftspeople and fabric designers, are designs using complicated abstract forms, created with cotton cloth. The technique is that of reverse applique: the sewing of several layers of fabric stacked together with patterns cut through the layers. Since the early 1900's, the Cuna Indian women of the San Blas Islands off the coast of Panama have been making molas for use in ornamenting the fronts and backs of their blouses. But these colorful designs are easily adaptable for designing quilt blocks, pillows, wall hangings and other craft applications. The inspiration they provide makes this book a welcome addition to the growing International Design Library series of books, described on the inside back cover."
