Mary Taylor combined her wonderful sense of color and rhythm with
a new angle on traditional applique quilting, creating a body
of work that has influenced many other quilters including Otesia
Harper, Liza Jackson, and her own mother, Pearlie Posey. One of
Taylor's "Hands" quilts was commissioned for use in
the film adaptation of The Color Purple. Her work is found in
many private and museum collections.
