My Emerald Challenge quilt is coming along! Yet, the deadline is quickly approaching. For me, the first deadline is getting my quilt top ready for the quilter by August 15. After that, I am hoping to have it back by September 15. That gives me two weeks to complete the binding before the October 1 deadline.

How are your Emerald Challenge projects coming along? What are you working on?

Even though the deadline is approaching, I think it is not too late to start a project like a table runner or purse featuring the challenge fabric. I am already excited to see the final results!

Happy stitching,

Hey there... I'm Sierra!

I am from a family of all girls. I always keep a journal. John & I were married back in 2013. It was a miracle then & it is now. We had three kids between Oct 2014 & August 2018 : Joslyn Shea, J.D., and Jesse Lee. We remodeled two houses & moved three times in our first 5 years. I grew up in Missouri, but was transplanted to South Dakota. I am working on my masters at Sioux Falls Seminary as of 6.1.19.

I started Sierra Shea & Co. as a space to curate encouragement for all women toward creative, redemptive lives as daughters of the King of Kings.
