Born during World War II, Sandy grew up sewing in Holland,
Michigan. "My mother taught me to sew on my grandmother's
machine, and every time I finished a project she would say,
"Now, go show your father." I always felt full
approval from him and loved to see his reaction."
Sandy was trained as an art teacher and began quilting in
1979 while she was living in Iran and then Saudi Arabia,
teaching at an American school. One of her first quilts was
a baby quilt made for her third child, who was born in Saudi
Back to California in 1984, Sandy continued to expand her interest
in quilting and improve her skills. She started working at a local
quilt store and began teaching classes. In 2000, she published a
series of three quilt books with Jan Patek. In 2002, she started
creating her own patterns and marketing them under the name American
Jane Patterns. The following year she was invited to become
a fabric designer for Moda Fabrics.
She has had quilts displayed at Houston Quilt Market
and at the Pacific International Quilt Festival. She
has created many fabric lines for Moda, and has 130 quilt
patterns on display on her website.
