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!

  • 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!

  • Lila

    January 21, 2011 at 8:48 am |

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

  • 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!

    Would love to win the magazine & I like the modern scarf!. I’m hoping I didn’t already make an entry & disqualify myself. Ugh, hate those memory lapses, & you have too many entries to check myself. :)

    I’m also uncertain about the quilted scarf – but in this case I think it works!
