I am a quilter living in Woodbridge, Suffolk who has made quilts since I was a teenager. I also ring bells! Both are great British traditions....I will try to feature some of my antique Welsh and Durham quilts, the quilts I make myself, my quilting activities and also some of my bellringing achievements. Plus as many photos as I can manage. NB: Double click on the photos to see greater detail, then use back button to return to the main page.

Mola of a Butterfly

Here is a mola, bought earlier this year. It is of a butterfly, moth, or other flying insect. I love the energy that these squares have. And I appreciate the work that goes into even a small piece of applique such as this.

The white background fabric is textured, in a pebbled sort of way, and adds visual interest when you examine it closely. At the moment, this block is near to my sofa ( aka sewing station) where I can appreciate it. At some point it will go upstairs to join the other molas that I have bought over the years.


  1. Hi Pippa,
    How beautiful this mola is. I have several (+/- 18) mola's myself, bought in Colombia. I collected them to make a quilt or a wand hanging but I find that very difficult. Did you find a way to show them? Or are they, just like mine, in a box?

  2. Beautifully that mola! I collect them myself, so pretty to look at, so beautifully
