About the Author
A native of Germany, fiber artist Margit Kagerer was introduced to the world of quilting and fiber art when she relocated to the United States. She had been a math teacher to 11th and 12th graders, but was unable to continue this profession. Her interest in geometry naturally led her to admire the patterns found in traditional quilts. Right from the beginning she created her own contemporary designs with geometric patterns. She was also inspired by the colors of her surrounding environment, especially the vibrant foliage in New England. When the couple moved to Arizona, Margit was attracted by the brilliant colors and beauty of the desert. So she ''painted'' the dramatic Arizona scenery with fabric. Margit's hobby of making quilts is more than just a pleasant pastime to her. It is a way of expressing herself, using her sewing skills, teaching other quilters, and as a result of all of these, winning awards for her original quilts. Inspiration can come from many sources, and she feels that working with the different fabrics gives her a creative freedom, allowing her to ''transfer what I see into a picture or abstract design".
