About Bill Stearman

Bill struggled with storytelling as a way to make sense of his life for many years. Then, he discovered his voice in quilt-making.

Fabrics and carefully placed stitches express joy, anguish, hope, gratitude and love, providing glimpses into deep and important stories –  stories that matter on personal and social levels. His quilts make bold statements and provoke thoughtful consideration on a variety of important and relevant topics, such as gender identity, racism, the LGBTQIA+ community and his own personal stories and life events.

Bill’s quilts have been juried into Quilt Canada’s National Juried Shows in 2016, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021, as well as the International Quilt Festival in Houston and Chicago from 2017-2019. He is a member of the Prince Edward County Quilters’ Guild, Trent Valley Quilters’ Guild and the Bay of Quinte Modern Quilt Guild.

“I doubt that these quilts, and their stories, will remind you of your Grandmother’s quilts.”
