Superior Stars: Robbi Eklow

Presenting!  Kenophobia by Robbi Eklow!



It took about 4 years to finish this gorgeous quilt.  Robbi’s design was inspired by Fair Isle knitting (If you see a Fair Isle sweater with different designs in stripes, you’ll see what she means!).

Kenophobia is a fused quilt, which requires a lot of stitching to hold the edges down.  Robbi mounted the quilt top on her longarm, thread painted and then added the batting and backing to finish the quilting.  The details on Robbi’s quilt are amazing, which is where the name Kenophobia comes from.  It means a fear of the void or empty spaces. 

Robbi’s best advice to quilters is to relax, enjoy yourself, and don’t worry about what anyone else thinks about your quilt.  She says they should be happy to get them or to visit them.
