The Emerald Quilting Contest deadline is coming right up (October 1 is already here)! This week I am binding my quilt. It has never been my favorite task, but I am getting better.DSCN7248 This YouTube tutorial gave me a little inspiration and lots of tips. I am working on getting the hang of mitered corners!

At the 8:30 mark she starts describing how to bring the two edges of the binding together to finish sewing it onto the quilt. This is a wonderful tip & it is the first time I have learned it this exact way. It would be impossible to describe with words, so you’ll just have to watch it!

Happy binding!



P.S. If you are getting your online entry ready, here is the info on how to submit your project.

    Thanks for sharing, Sierra! I haven’t heard of that method either but I will be doing it from now on.

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!
