A scarf in Stitch and a giveaway

Oh hey! Some work of mine is in the latest Stitch!


Inside Stitch

I’ll go ahead and say it: I don’t think wearables and quilted go together. Pretty much ever. So when Stitch asked me to make a scarf for the Spring 2011 issue I was daunted. I wasn’t required to make it quilted, but hell, I’m a quilter. So I tackled the task and think that I did alright at making something ok!

Me and scarf

I used flannel in the middle to make it have more of a flexible drape than batting would have given it.

Now the giveaway! Who wants a copy of the magazine? Leave a comment and I’ll announce a winner on Monday. Good luck!

    I love the idea of using flannel for a better drape. I also love the straight line quilting you did – gives it a modern look to me.

    I think it’s gorgeous. I’ve never looked at stitch magazine and would love to flip through an issue- I’ve kind of been wanting a few subscriptions lately, and am just trying to figure out which zines to subscribe to.

  23. Diane January 21, 2011 at 8:15 am #

    Love the colors you chose for the project. The pop of orange is beautiful.

  34. Megan January 21, 2011 at 8:40 am #

    The scarf looks great and I love using flannel for the “batting.” Thanks for a chance to win a copy of the magazine. I have a few of the previous issues and they’re all amazing!

  35. emily January 21, 2011 at 8:43 am #

    i want one! cute cute scarf!

  36. Holly January 21, 2011 at 8:45 am #

    I agree…it’s difficult to come up with “wearable” quilting, but that scarf is great!

    I would love to win this magazine! It’s really hard to get in Canada, so I often end up ordering it specially.

  37. Emily January 21, 2011 at 8:46 am #

    I JUST picked up a copy at my LQS– b/c, you know, I HAVE 6! NOW! And I was flipping through it before buying it as quickly as I could and I saw the scarf and thought “That looks like something Alissa would make!” And the by line confirmed it! So stinkin’ great!

  38. Lila January 21, 2011 at 8:48 am #

    How adorable! Stitch is hard to find where I live, would love to win a copy!

  39. Anna January 21, 2011 at 8:49 am #

    My favorite part is the thick line of stitching running the length of the scarf. And, I just love STITCH!

  40. Mystica January 21, 2011 at 8:53 am #

    I would like to be counted in. The book will never be available here.

  41. Liz January 21, 2011 at 8:54 am #

    I love scarves! Yours is lovely.
    I would love a copy of Stitch!

  42. Cybele January 21, 2011 at 8:58 am #

    I also love the tight accent stitching, and I have been itching to get my hands on Stitch Magazine!

  43. Melissa January 21, 2011 at 9:06 am #

    Gorgeous scarf!

  44. Amy Hodge January 21, 2011 at 9:07 am #

    I would love a copy of Stitch! You did a great job on your project. I totally agree that I don’t think “quilted” and “clothing” go together particularly well, but you’ve done a stellar job! Thanks for the giveaway!

  45. Vicki K January 21, 2011 at 9:07 am #

    This is one of the best magazines – congratulations on your feature! I especially love the stitching you did on the scarf – and the colors.

  46. Trisha January 21, 2011 at 9:08 am #

    I am so with you on the quilting and wearables thing! I think you did a great job with the scarf.

  47. mjb January 21, 2011 at 9:08 am #

    Me me me! I can’t find this magazine in town so I always have to order it to find it.

  48. Ms. Fine January 21, 2011 at 9:11 am #

    Lovely. I’d love a chance to win.

  49. Ruth January 21, 2011 at 9:15 am #

    Congratulations!!! Your scarf is beautiful. Great idea!

  50. Melissa January 21, 2011 at 9:15 am #

    I’ve been wondering myself what would give a nice drape to a scarf. You did a fantastic job pulling together a quilted wearable that would actually be pretty cool to wear!

    Stitch is a wonderful magazine! I just have to drive a ways to find one. Thanks for a chance to win.
