My name is Sandra Kintz and I live on the Oregon coast in Florence, Oregon.  I started my pattern design business, named "Collectible Lighthouse Quilts", in 1998 after working 18 years in Quality Assurance for an aerospace company in California. My husband Don, who claims to be my shipping & handling department, also assists me by providing the initial lighthouse sketches.  From there I develop the functional pattern components & the assembly instructions.
 

Presently, I have completed all nine of the Oregon lighthouse patterns, six of the California & three of the Washington.  These paper-pieced patterns have been generally well received by quilters. In fact, some quilting groups have chosen select patterns to be their "block of the month".  Also, I am especially proud of a large quilt composed of eight of my lighthouse designs, made by a group of church quilters & displayed in the sanctuary of their church under the title of "God is the Light".
 

Recently I became acutely aware of the fact that many quilters are more familiar with the appliqué method of quilting than the paper-pieced method. Therefore I started designing lighthouse patterns incorporating the fusible web (no-sew) & the traditional hand sewn appliqué methods.  Since I am also starting design of the California mission patterns, I have changed my business name to "Sentries of Light" which incorporates the attributes of both lighthouses & missions.

 
"I find my business to be very satisfying & I thoroughly enjoy associating with quilters – they are good people."      - Sandra Kintz
