Are you a Goddess of the Last Minute? I think there are a lot of us out there, scrambling to meet quilt-show deadlines, hurriedly finishing up a quilt to give as a gift, running to the quilt shop or post office just before the doors lock. There may be a little Goddess in all of us.

Overview

A note from the author:

Are you a Goddess of the Last Minute? I think there are a lot of us out there, scrambling to meet quilt-show deadlines, hurriedly finishing up a quilt to give as a gift, running to the quilt shop or post office just before the doors lock. There may be a little Goddess in all of us.
            This book is a collection of new essays about the quilting life. In the stories ahead, you’ll read about my adventures as an art quilter, mother of two, and traveling instructor; what inspired me to get my first tattoo; how to convince your husband to buy you a sewing machine instead of diamond earrings; how to determine if you have a color obsession; and a few practical quilting tips I’ve learned along the way.

            I bet if you quilt you’ll see a bit of yourself in these pages and laugh, or maybe you’ll see that you are completely different . . . and be relieved.

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
