Overview

A funny thing happened on the way to the quilt show. . . .

 

So the story invariably goes, because, where Robbi Joy Eklow (a.k.a. The Goddess of the Last Minute) goes, something funny is bound to happen--or simply to occur to her.  As colorful and surprising as the quilts Robbi is famous for, the stories and reflections gathered here create an irresistible picture of an irrepressible character quilting and quipping her way through life.  Filled with the kind of gems that have made her Quilting Arts Magazine column so popular, this book includes Robbi’s musings on creativity and color, as well as on the trials and tribulations that every quilter faces.  The Goddess of the Last Minute invites readers to take a wry look at those trials--and, with Robbi’s wit and insight, turn them into the sort of crazy quilt that warms and brightens daily life.  The story of how she became a Goddess, anecdotes of life on the road, encounters with fellow quilters:  these and other often hilarious tales of a not-quite-charmed life make this quilter’s compendium a delightful patchwork to contemplate, and to treasure.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Robbi may be a bit cheeky at times, but she is right-on with the topics she chooses to write about and, as we’ve learned from reading Robbi’s Goddess columns in Quilting Arts Magazine, she never fails to touch a nerve or make us laugh. In her new book, Robbi reflects on creativity, family, the fun and folly of being a quilter, and more. And as always, she’ll make you laugh. — Quilting Arts Magazine
