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!

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

Hey there... I'm Sierra!

I love to blog, plan, organize, decorate, teach, research & be creative. I’m a farm wife & mama of three kiddos: almost 6, 4 and almost 2. We love to live and work in rural South Dakota. A few years ago we remodeled a house & we call our home The Peacock Ranch.

I am earning a Spiritual Direction Certificate from Sioux Falls Seminary & I put my masters in English/Mass Communications on hold at South Dakota State University so I can focus on being a mama in a pandemic! In the meantime, I’m enjoying reading more & writing here on the blog.
