The Printed Fabric Bee Giveaway: Molas!


It's time, once again, for The Printed Fabric Bee Giveaway. For those of you unfamiliar with The Printed Fabric Bee, we are a group of 12 surface design enthusiasts. Each month, one member is designated the Queen. The Queen gets to select a theme and colors for her fabric collection and the rest of the members get to work. The result is an original and eclectic collection of fabrics. And since we like to spread the fun around, each month we put together a collection of 6" square versions of the fabric that you can win!


This month I was the Queen! My theme was Molas. I just love molas... a reverse applique technique developed by the Kuna Indians. I'm attracted to the symmetry, the contrast and bright colors and also the playfulness and mastery of the technique. I'm so excited to have the Bee members interpret this theme.


Now...for the giveaway...Here is what you have to do...leave a comment on this blog post or go over to The Printed Fabric Bee blog and leave one there. I'll be choosing a winner on Wednesday, April 15th (just to cheer someone up on Tax Day!). You'll have up to midnight Eastern USA time on April 14th to leave your comment.


In the meantime, stop off at each of the Bee member's blogs to find out how they created their mola fabric designs. Good luck!!!

    Like all of you I have always loved Molas, too. Your designs are so vibrant. The repeats are so lyrical and suddenly playful. They all bounce with enthusiasm and show off the talents of the Queen Bees. Thanks for sharing your inspiration with us.
