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 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.
