Review by Sharla Hicks © 2000

The first thing that struck me as I looked closely at Stitched with Love, A Mother's Quilting Heritage by Robyn Pandolph was how dramatically Robyn's connections with our beloved handiwork heritage comes across in each page. Robyn shares her connection to her mother and grandmother legacy of quiltmaking and her desire to share this same love with others. Feeling much the same way, I felt an instant repore with the author and was anxious to see what she had to offer. For me, the well staged photography presentation and engaging colors guided me on to each new each page and chapter. Soft colors take you to the Introduction and Table of Contents where you get to know Robyn better and you know where her inspiration for designs and fabrics comes from.

This book is a multifaceted of presentation in both the written word and on a multimedia Design CD. "Stitched with Love" is the first book in the Magic Book Series planned by Electric Quilt. You will find 9 quilts and coordinate inspired wearables, craft and home decorating projects presented.

The Printed Word aka Book:

This book has a little of everything and includes 15 of Robyn's enchanting folk art applique projects. (See table of contents for additional details.)

  • Each chapter is lovingly introduced to inspire you continue on the legacy of quiltmaking.
  • Robyn lays out instructions for 9 quilt with fabric requirements, cutting charts and assembly instructions.
  • Each quilt has a series of coordinate projects quilted curtains, decor items like pillows, floor cloths, picture frames, cozy covers, gift tags, labels, tea trays, table cloth, invitations, embellishing back packs, and wearable art.
  • Each project has required supplies, construction steps and tips for successful completion.
  • Find a surprise or two as Robyn tells you how to bleach or overdye your fabrics to get a more vintage look.
  • She even includes a recipe or two with mouth watering photography that makes you want to stop on the spot and try them.
