Review: By Dori Hawks
Robyn Pandolph makes it look so easy! With her very clear instructions and her
detailed and beautiful photos, the steps to doing successful needleturn hand appliqué looks very doable. I was
Her new book, Needleturn Appliqué Made Easy, is a thoroughly organized and encouraging book.
“Throughout her many years of teaching, Robyn has often used her six-block quilt titled ‘My Favorite Things’ as a terrific
tool for learning needleturn appliqué. From the six blocks which range from the simple heart to the more challenging bee
skep featuring the bias bar technique, beginners can master the challenges of everything from outer and inner curves and
corners to narrow points and reverse appliqué.”
This book is like having a private lesson with Robyn. It is an 80-page book jam-packed with
many projects, great instructions, and fantastic photo illustrations! She shows you her preferred method, plus two other
methods of needleturn appliqué, plus reverse appliqué and using the bias bars technique.
Great for all levels of appliqué, beginners will love this book because of the thorough
instructions and detailed images, and advanced appliquérs will enjoy her wonderful patterns, and maybe even learn a new
twist using Robyn’s methods.
This is a must have book for your personal or guild library. Ask for it at your local quilt shop!
