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.
