I just stumbled upon “The Process Pledge.” It started here on the blog of Rossie Hutchinson. I am inspired to see that 915 quilters have already taken the pledge. I’m number 916.


Rossie’s Inspiration

Here is what Rossie said on her blog about why she created the pledge:

“I have made a process pledge.  The goal of the process pledge is to create a new sensibility in quilting blogs where we don’t just show finishes or occasionally confess about our moments of indecision, but chat openly and often about our works in progress, our inspirations, and our moments of decision. I know that many of us are already posting about our thinking on quilts and the processes involved from start to finish, let’s do more!  And let’s post about quilts as we work on them.  I want to see more half-done quilts, not just the finished thing with a journal entry about the process.I think part of the reason I really like the blogs from quilting bees is because a lot of the process gets documented…from original concept, to raw materials, to each block in turn, and often a few drafts of the final layout.  It’s awesome!”

My Process Pledge:

I, Sierra, pledge to write about my quilting processes, even when I can’t quite put them into in words or be sure I’m being totally clear. I’m going to put my thinking and my gut feelings out there.

Why I love quilt blogging

This fun, informal pledge is just one of the many reasons why I enjoy the online quilting community. It is so exciting to read the processes of other quilters & designers. You can read about some of my processes on recent projects here:

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!
