Maday creates quilts with a contemporary look, showcasing neat abstract geometric patterns that put a new spin on the classic quilting style of sewing together a series of similarly-sized squares. Sometimes Maday uses these irregular polygon-shaped fabric strips to create simplified images over the surface of the quilt, offering a unique viewing experience when the quilt is held up or hung on a wall.

The artist also hosts workshops in her studio space, where participants get to paint quilt-like patterns onto wood boards. The way Maday bridges the gap between a traditional craft such as quilting, and contemporary art forms, reminds me of fellow quilter Pat Autenrieth
