Lindsay Stead and her quilts

I spotted mention of Toronto-based Lindsay Stead and her quilts in the latest issue of Canadian House & Home and went to have a peek at her website. OMG her quilts, with modern geometric shapes, are absolutely stunning!!!! 

The traditions behind quilt making play a large role in my work. Most designs are based on traditional quilt patterns and each quilt is entirely hand quilted. The tiny, slightly imperfect hand stitches add a nice contrast to the minimal designs. The quilts are made by me in my Toronto studio and also by a group of women in rural Ontario who have handed down, through generations, their knowledge of quilting. The result is a collection of modern quilts with traditional roots.
