Robbi Joy Eklow
Free Expression Quilts
Our speaker this month is Robbi Joy Eklow, the Goddess of the Last Minute, of Omaha, Nebraska. She enjoys working with fiber and uses it to introduce herself to people.
Robbi has an Engineering degree from Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. In college she married her husband Brian and they have two children. Robbi lectures and teaches internationally, and has shown quilts and won ribbons in major quilt shows across the United States.
Her bi-monthly column, “Goddess of the Last Minute”, was published in Quilting Arts Magazine from 2002-2015. She has designed quilts and written articles for
many quilting publications and written two books about quilting.
Robbi’s quilts are mostly in the Art Deco style. She makes art quilts from cotton fabrics which she dyes herself, uses bonded applique and free motion quilts
extensively on the surface. She enjoys lecturing and teaching in order to share the techniques she’s using and to encourage others to find their voice through fiber.
Robbie’s presentation, Free Expression Quilts, will explore her latest quilts and those from her book “Free Expression: The Art and Confessions of a Contemporary Quilter”. It will include real quilts as well as a power point presentation.
There’s still time to sign up for Robbi’s workshop, Fusapalooza Mini. Choose a pattern from many and make a mini top to take home!
