I love to travel all over the globe shopping for textiles to add to my wearable art. I have taught quilting to school children in Nepal, seminole patchwork to seamstresses in Thailand, and jackets and embellishment to quilters in Turkey where I also served as a judge at 2 of their International Quilt Shows. I have created garments for 5 Fairfield and Bernina Fashion Shows and teach classes on embellishment and wearable art. Lately I have been leaning more toward making art quilts.

The Mola Quilt Challenge - Holy Mola

A few months ago Pat Pauly challenged us to a "Holy Mola" competition. We were to take a mola purchased from me as an inspiration for a quilt. The mola could not be used in the quilt and had to be one we owned and still own. Quilts could be any size but needed to be at least 24" square. A dinner and show at the end would celebrate our efforts. 19 people responded to the challenge. Our wonderful dinner and party took place last night. Photos courtesy of Pat Pauly. www.patpauly.com

Um, not to be TOO picky or anything, but you spelled my name incorrectly. Vasiliev. Thanks for putting the photos up. It's good to have them available to all others.
And I really, really like yours, by the way. Great apple seeds, growing to eventually become the apple of the original mola. Sweet.
