The Modern Quilt: Lindsay Stead’s Artful Compositions

May 13, 2016

Part of a new generation of contemporary quilters, designer Lindsay Stead is making her own mark on this traditional craft. Her work, though informed by iconic patterns from the past, pushes the envelope toward a new modern aesthetic characterized by a dramatic use of negative space, minimal yet bold graphics, and traditional techniques.

To see Linday’s work in person, visit Black and White, Twelve Quilts in New York this weekend, May 12 to 15. A collaboration between Lindsay and other influential modern quilters, the show features other Remodelista favorites, including Thompson Street Design, Haptic Lab, Meg Callahan, Season Evans, and many more.

Above: A perfect combination: Sawkille Studio bench and Lindsay’s Rail Fence Quilt; $950 CAD ($738 USD).

In keeping with time-honored techniques, each of Lindsay’s quilts is made by hand by a team of traditional quilters in rural Ontario. Thus no two are exactly alike.
