Students select a photograph they wish to work from, get it enlarged and trace a pattern from which to work. Another option is to use any pattern by Sandra, which may be appropriate for beginning students who do not have an image they want to use. Students will select appropriate fabrics to use, which are then fused into place, enhanced with media, and quilted to create an art quilt.
About Sandra Mollon
Sandra is a quilt and textile artist living in Valley Springs in Northern California. She saw her first quilt magazine in the late 1980’s, and began quilting in earnest shortly after. Sandra began making very traditional pieced and appliquéd quilts, many winning ribbons, and eventually having one of her original designs, the “Seasons of Life” quilt winning the “Outstanding Large Quilt” award in 2019 at Road to California, and having that quilt going on to win a purchase award at the 2019 Spring Paducah show. It now is a part of the permanent collection of the National Quilt Museum.
She is the author of the book “Seasons of Life Quilt, Techniques and Patterns for 13 Baltimore Album Quilt Blocks” published by C&T Publications, released in 2021. She began to be seriously interested in art quilting and thread painting for the past few years, and many of her art quilts have also been award winners at major shows, including “Best Wall Quilt” at the 2021 PIQF in Santa Clara California. She was also interviewed about her work on her quilt “Toroweep Overlook” by the Grand Canyon Historical Society. She has written about her realistic style for “American Quilter” magazine (Jan. 2021 issue).
With a background in teaching, being in the classroom has been very comfortable for her, and she enjoys sharing her techniques with others. She has also hosted international quilt tours, and has taught internationally as well as throughout the USA.
