Sandra Mollon and Her Fabric Art Journey

Back in the mid-1980’s, Sandra Mollen’s family rented a house whose previous tenant was a quilter.  After living in the hose for a month, a quilting magazine showed up in Sandra’s mailbox for the previous tenant.  As Sandra thumbed through the pages, she realized how much she loved the quilts, and within 3 months, Sandra bought her first sewing machine.

Sandra Mollon joined a quilt guild in the late 1980’s in Maryland.  She entered one of her first quilts in their local show.  During a set up meeting, Sandra overheard someone call it “ugly.”  Needless to say, Sandra “was pretty devasted and decided that I would try harder before the next show (two years).  Deciding that the Baltimore Album Quilts were the most beautiful, in my mind anyway, I set out to learn to applique.  Two years later I won the viewer’s choice ribbon in that very same guild.  I worked in that style for nearly three decades, eventually winning a purchase award at Spring Paducah in 2019 and have a quilt in that style in the National Quilt Museum.” 

After many years of hand applique work, Sandra was ready to try something new. She discovered that National and International quilt shows were bringing in whole new approaches to textile art.  Sandra decided to join in and has been making fused raw edge art quilts from photographs ever since.

Where Sandra Creates

When Sandra began sewing, her space was really the dining room table when the family wasn’t eating around it. Eventually, she took over a bedroom when her oldest left for college.  When Sandra outgrew that space, she jokingly suggested to her husband that they buy a new house.  And 9 years ago—they did!! Their newest home had a large ‘game’ room with a pool table in it.  Sandra kicked out the pool table and set up her dream studio.

Sandra Mollon’s sewing room houses the tools she can’t work without: her Bernina Q20, assorted scissors, fabric, thread, and Misty Fuse adhesive. During the pandemic, Sandra learned how to use “Zoom”—something she had not even heard of prior to 2020. 

Road@Home Classes

Sandra Mollon is looking forward to teaching at Road@Home, especially her lecture, “Art Quilts from Photographs.” She can’t wait to have “a large audience of people who can see what I do.  I hope I inspire others to reach for their dreams.”

    I’m so glad that Road will have a virtual show. I started attending Road before it was held in the convention center when I lived in CA.
