Carl Hentsch grew up on the east coast of Florida. He learned to embroider from his mother when he was 10. At the age of 12 he was designing dresses for his two-year old niece, and helping his mother make them. He also learned knitting from his aunt.
In 1999, Carl started quilting. He learned by watching Eleanor Burns, Alex Anderson, and Fons and Porter on TV. After a two-year lull, Carl moved to the Kansas City area and picked up his quilting in 2006. He has had original designs displayed in AQS shows in Knoxville and Des Moines, as well as a traveling quilt with the 2010 Hoffman Challenge. Carl teaches quilting at local quilt shops and has self-published two patterns, Leap Frog and Evergreen. He also had a pattern featured in Issue 10 of The Fat Quarterly.
Carl has degrees in biology, chemistry, accounting, and linguistics. He has traveled the US extensively and also the Orient. To support his quilting habit, he has a day job marketing computer software.
