Quiltmaker Linday Stead creates some pretty wonderful work. Her quilts are rooted in tradition yet they have a really modern sensibility. Based in Toronto, her designs combine color and pattern to excellent affect, creating work that would look just as good hanging on a wall as it would draped on a bed.
All made by hand, each quilt is a one-of-a-kind. According to Lindsay it takes between 30 and 80 hours to complete each one, and the results are fantastic. Personally I love the restraint in her designs; her asymmetrical patterns have a bold graphic sensibility and her fondness for minimalism and modernism really shines through.
