- About Us
Bob’s first life was as a Math professor at a Catholic Girls College in Buffalo. He moved on to function as an Engineer at Lockheed Martin in Valley Forge, all the while continuing to teach math at local colleges. In 1992 his wife 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 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 has written two books, “Hill & Valley Log Cabins” and Remarkable Rectangles-Weaving Coverlets Turned to Quilts (August 2014).
Bob started quilting in 1992, making a queen size Log Cabin for his daughter’s wedding. As a mathematician, he was fascinated by the seemingly endless number of patterns. He has designed blocks and quilts since 1993, receiving a ribbon at VQS for “Spirit I” and a blue ribbon at the Pennsylvania Quilt Extravaganza for “Butterfly” (designed in EQ5). He discovered EQ in 1995and has since designed more than 1000 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 cabins, converting weaving patterns to quilts, converting needlepoint designs into quilts and converting Navajo weavings into quilts. In each area, the number of possibilities is seemingly endless, but he pursues them one at a time.
