Meet the Author


Robbi Joy Eklow has been sewing, beading, and playing with fiber since she was a kindergartner getting up early to watch moon launches. For awhile her love of science and math overcame her love of textiles while she earned a degree in engineering from Purdue University. She dyes all of her own fabric for her quilts. Robbi started her first quilt in 1976, during the Great Quilt Revival.

Robbi has written a first-person humor column on her adventures in quilting, Goddess of the Last Minute, for Quilting Arts Magazine since Summer 2002. She teaches internationally and her work has been exhibited in major shows where she occasionally wins ribbons.

She lives in Chicago, IL
