Noshi started her quilting journey in 1996 after seeing her first quilt. It was love at first sight and she was hooked. She could not believe that fabric could be manipulated into such intricate designs. She enjoys the challenge of original designs and incorporated traditional design elements and bright colours in her quilts. The most enjoyable part of the quilting for Noshi is the hand quilting and hand applique and compares hand quilting to meditation.
