A scarf in Stitch and a giveaway

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

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.

Scarf Close Up

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

    I’d love a copy. I was eyeing it yesterday at Hobby Lobby and decided to wait for the 40% off coupon to come in the mail. So if I don’t win, I’m still going to go get it. Thanks!

  36. Elissa January 21, 2011 at 12:12 pm #

    I would love to win that! I just found your blog the other day as I was scouring the web for ideas for a quilt… I started a tradition of making my younger cousins quits as they graduate from high school…. and that time is coming once again!

  37. Melissa P January 21, 2011 at 12:26 pm #

    I totally agree, wearable quilts are not cute… that being said, this scarf is great.

  38. Laura January 21, 2011 at 12:59 pm #

    Love that magazine. Love that scarf.

  39. Amie January 21, 2011 at 1:22 pm #

  40. Donna January 21, 2011 at 1:24 pm #

    I love this scarf! yellow and grey go so well together and that pop of aqua is lovely… haven’t picked up stitch yet so would love to win a copy.

  41. Danielle January 21, 2011 at 1:32 pm #

    Great scarf! I’d love a copy of the Stitch mag! Thanks

  42. Missy January 21, 2011 at 1:46 pm #

    You model your scarf very professionally! Love it!

  43. Jacey January 21, 2011 at 2:06 pm #

    I think your scarf is just the right amount of quilting and patchwork. It’s beautiful! Thanks for the chance for the Stitch magazine. I’ve been eyeing this edition.

  44. Krista - Poppyprint January 21, 2011 at 2:08 pm #

    You did a great job, it’s super cool. I’d love a copy. It is scarce here in Canada!

  45. Brittney January 21, 2011 at 2:39 pm #

    I love the scarf, it would make the perfect gift! And it would be great in different fabrics too – voile for spring, pretty flannel for winter, so many possibilities!

  46. Derek January 21, 2011 at 2:40 pm #

    It would be awesome to win a copy of stitch! Thank you.

  47. Meghan January 21, 2011 at 2:56 pm #

    Oh, I do, I do! I’ve been looking for it around town (unsucsessfully!)

    The scarf is lovely.

  48. Toni January 21, 2011 at 3:10 pm #

    Awesome scarf! I am in need of a new one, so I may have to make one using this inspiration. Have a great weekend!

  49. Tricia C January 21, 2011 at 3:12 pm #

    Not sure why you were worried. You did a great job combining a wearable and quilting! Congrats!!
