Jackie Robinson lives in Durango, in scenic southwestern Colorado with her husband, Jery Wyatt.
Jackie opened her first quilt shop in a St. Louis suburb in 1982. In '88, they sold it to make a choice move to Durango where they opened Animas Quilts, a shop for quilting enthusiasts.
An international teacher and lecturer, Jackie has authored nine quilting books. She is best known for her geometric patterns, creating complicated patterns from simple shapes. Jackie has made in excess of 300 quilts. Her teaching style is energetic. Students are always encouraged to develop their own quilt, based on the material presented, or may choose to duplicate the presented quilt(s). Jackie believes in sharing all she possibly can in the given amount of time available.
Her quilts have been featured on the covers of Quilt World and Creative Quilting. American Patchwork and Quilting wrote a feature story about her Frank Lloyd Wright quilts and then, in 1997 they selected her shop, Animas Quilts, as one of the ten shops to feature in their Sampler issue. Her Three-Dimensional Patchwork was featured in the Nov/Dec '97 Quiltmaker and the Dec. '97 Quilter's Newsletter Magazine.
Jackie offers a range of workshops and lectures for shops and guilds including classes on Tessellations, Three Dimensional Patchwork, and Wright's art glass interpreted in quilts. In her lecture about F. L. Wright, she literally "puts him on". You may request her list of workshops and lectures by writing or email.
