    This is tough = All are different and wonderful – I am voting for #4 Like the added touch to the back.

  2. Joy shelton

    Like the benefit quilt looked the hardest does anyone HAND quilt or just machine?

    I vote for # 4. Nice crisp lines and the back is an extra touch. Great job on all the entries. 🙂

  5. Jenny Ledermann

    I have to vote for the darling sundress, makes me think of my daughter when she was
    Little! I would pick out cute fabrics like this one. Just precious!!
    Thanks for all you do!

    #3, the Christmas Mini-Quilt

    I think it sticks to the spirit of the challenge the best, incorporating the color into the project. I like the fussy-cut red blocks as well.

Hey, I’m Sierra Shea! I am so glad you are here. 

Where do I start with writing to introduce this blog? At the beginning, I suppose: I’ve been writing on various platforms online since 2013. I started blogging shortly after moving to South Dakota.

I am a mother and a maker at heart. I’m so grateful to be married to John and mother of three: Joslyn, J.D. and Jesse.

I am a self-taught decorator and designer. I am a brand new shepherdess and a Spiritual Director.

I love living in South Dakota, even though the winters & the wind can be a near-daily struggle.

Blogging is a grounding force in my life and it helps get me out of my head, unstuck and moving in the directions I always hoped I’d be going!
