I have been honored to join the Modern Quilting Ring. One of the questions asked was who was my favorite artist. I don't really have a favorite per se, but Henri Matisse is one I particularly associate with my quilting. Not only are his colors so bright, but he uses many colorful fabrics in his paintings. And his paper cuts are an influence on my applique. I often cut out a design in paper to experiment when I'm designing applique. He frequently depicted fruit and flowers, which are favorite designs for quilters.
