I love Molas! I used to clean house for a lady who taught elementary school in the Panama Canal Zone for 27 years. She had lots of beautiful linens and wooden items but I never saw any molas she might have had. She had a wooden tray with a glass covered insert made out of irridescent butterfly wings that was exquisite, even if I did feel sorry for the butterflies!

oo purty. love the paisleys. so now I have to say I don't like this wordless thing - I want to know where they came from!

Wow! I love the colors. Those will be so fun to use in a project!

I'm a big fan of these things. I have a Costa Rica souvenir t-shirt I bought at a thrift shop for 25 cents, with a big one on the front. I hate the way the t-shirt fits, but plan to take the Mola panel off and use for something else. I'll be watching to see what you do with yours.

In the words of the local dentist - nice molas! Joking apart these are all gorgeous, thanks for sharing

Wow, I love molas! I have a couple in my house that we got when we lived in Panama years ago. I have never seen any that have so much of a single color as a couple of yours do!

Just beautiful and no words needed. Great colors.

Those molas are beautiful. I have one little one from Panama, and three larger ones I bought at a quilt show. I have them on the walls in my sewing room. I stare at them in awe!

Lovely Molas...I saw some once for sale in Seattle for so incredibly cheap prices. I always wondered who made them.
