Steph Skardal, award-winning quilter
Steph Skardal likes to enter her quilts into shows simply just to share her work. Little did the mother of three young daughters know that she’d reel in Best In Show honors at QuiltCon 2018 for her original quilt “Going Up”. Skardal works part-time as an ecommerce software engineer and finds time to quilt an hour or two each day while the kids are at daycare.
She has only been quilting seriously for about 2 1/2 years. She joined a local open sew group through her local quilt shop which helped her perfect her technique and get to where she is today.
In the interview Steph and I discuss her award-winning quilt and the process that went into creating it and much more.
