I finished my hexagon quilt! IMG_0094I used this video tutorial from the Missouri Star Quilt Company to give machine binding my first shot.

This quilt was a labor of love & learning new skills. I added large rick rack & used a unique stitch. IMG_0105

The corners were tough. Technically, it is one of the worst quilts I’ve ever made. But, I tried so many new techniques! IMG_0107

Even though the corners aren’t perfection – I like the overall look! IMG_0109

This quilt marks off #4 on my Quilt Bucket List as a hand-quilted quilt.IMG_0104 I used pearl cotton. IMG_0113 IMG_0115

Ta-Da! Quilt inspiration for my sewing room!IMG_0101

    How pretty on your wall! I love the hand quilting. I have a quilt that I started hand quilting with perle cotton. I love the look, it is just so hard to pull that big of a needle/thread through! Any tips for needle size? It is tricky to be big enough for the thread, but small enough for ease of use.
    It was great seeing you in Missouri!

    This is beautiful and I hope to make one for myself just the same. These hexagonal are like ‘Benzene’ a chemical term which reminds me of my college days. These days I am learning how to quilt with hand and machine and slowly but surely I have learned so many designs and patterns but still I have not perfected it like you seem to have. Currently I am working on a leaf pattern and after that I am going to make this one. You can follow this link at http://www.warpandweft.ca/blog/ for more quilting information and tips.

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.
