Here is my new Mola ‘Jonah and the Whale’.
I really enjoyed stitching it. You can see that I used Kantha stitching for the background. Kantha consists of rows an rows of running stitch, I work them in closely spaced contours round the mothifs. I prefer this to the traditional Mola background of slashes of bright coloured reverse applique, it seems to suit my designs better, and it is good ‘sitting in front of the tv’ stitching – something I do quite a bit of in the evenings at this time of year.
