Robert DeCarli

Bob’s first life was as a math professor at a Catholic Girls College in Buffalo, New York. He moved on to function as an engineer at Lockheed Martin in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, all the while continuing to teach math at local colleges. In 1992 his wife, Kathleen, asked for help in making a quilt for their daughter’s wedding. She showed him how to make a four-patch and he was hooked.

As a mathematician, the seemingly endless number of possible patterns fascinated him. He has designed blocks and quilts since 1993, receiving a ribbon at the Vermont Quilt Festival and a blue ribbon at the Pennsylvania Quilt Extravaganza for BUTTERFLY (designed in EQ5).

He discovered Electric Quilt software in 2005 and has since designed more than one thousand quilts and blocks, including block and quilt settings for his wife’s appliqué projects. His primary interest, besides teaching, is designing various size, inter-locking Log Cabin blocks and converting weaving patterns to quilts. In each area, the number of possibilities is seemingly endless, but he pursues them one at a time.
