About

Babi is the name my grandchildren call me. Art is what I am making for YOU. So my shop is called babiart.

I've been quilting and knitting for more than 25 years. I started both hobbies after I retired as a CPA and began life as a full time motorhomer with my dear hubby. We traveled for 8 years all over the USA and Canada in our moving home, which exposed me to so many different kinds of quilt and yarn shops. After that, some of my quilting was done during our 5 years of sailing in SW Florida. Now we are settled in SC, like normal people, to enjoy our grandchildren who drag their Babi made quilts all over the house---except for the ones hanging on the walls of their room.

Most of my quilting is self-taught, but I am constantly taking classes from experts in person and on-line. I've taken classes on technique…

I've been quilting and knitting for more than 25 years. I started both hobbies after I retired as a CPA and began life as a full time motorhomer with my dear hubby.

Most of my quilting is self-taught, but I am constantly taking classes from experts in person and on-line. I've taken classes on technique from Georgia Bonesteel and a class from Kaffe Fassett on color. Because of the color, he called one of my quilts "pond scum", which meant I had all of my different yellow and green colors blended smoothly. The various possible shapes and thousands of color combinations keep me forever interested in this form of creativity. My determination to be precise is always helping me make each quilt a wonderful work of art. My love in quilting is Applique so you will see a lot of different ways I use this technique. Most of my quilts are for babies and children, because they can be playful and fun.

My workshop is smoke and pet free. It is a room over my garage which is filled with lots of colorful cloth and used only for quilting. It is never neat and straight, but always has a quilt on the floor, one on the wall, and another over a chair......all in process. The color in that room is overwhelming or should I say inspiring! I use quality cloth and batting, because I want my quilts to be an heirloom for your family.

So.....please enjoy each quilt made by me and feel special when you snuggle with one, because lots of love has been poured into each one of them-------also lots of precision and creativity which keeps me, the creator, happy.
