Who is Sujata Shah?
Sujata Shah, a graphic designer and textile lover, is originally from Mumbai, India. The mother of three grown children, she lives with her husband in Chester Springs, Pennsylvania.
She is an award-winning quilter and has designed quilt patterns under the name Rangoli Designs. Her teaching experiences include workshops inspired by the quilts of Gee's Bend in the Seattle area and in Philadelphia.
Sujata finds inspiration from the textures and imperfections of handmade objects such as patchwork, embroidered and woven textiles of India, mud cloth, adire cloth, and starch-resist cloths of Africa. Her exposure to different cultures has helped develop her distinctive style of quilts, which blends utilitarian and traditional quilts in an exciting way.
