Susan’s So Thankful Give-Away #13: Quilting Arts and Stitch magazine

Yep, it’s two more magazines! Both are published by Interweave. The first is the October/November 2011 issue of Quilting Arts, and the second is the Winter 2011 issue of Stitch
If you read my blog because you love or make art quilts, there’s a pretty good chance that you also read Quilting Arts magazine, which is the best magazine out there dedicated to art quilting (in my humble opinion!). But you may not have checked out Stitch, which includes projects for modern sewers, such as garments, home decor items, and crafts. I simply love the Wool Petals Pillow on the cover! It is one of a bevy of projects in this issue made with wool felt.

Here’s your chance to win! Leave a comment after this post and tell me about your favorite quilting or sewing magazine. I’ll pull two names at random at 9 p.m. on Saturday Dec. 10, and send you each a magazine. AND THE WINNERS ARE: Claudia Becker (QA) and Kimberly (Stitch).

  1. I do love quilting arts, so many wonderful projects and inspiration from art quilters. I was lucky enough to find copies at a thrift and I reread them, all the time. I really want to make time for myself this year and experiment with quilting and textile arts.

  3. In Holland we have also nice quilting magazines, but most of them are traditional. So I love to win one of the art quilt magazines!

  7. I live in Germany and there are not many quilting magazines here (at least not really interesting for me). The only one which I like to read from time to time is Patchwork Professional. It's focused on art quilts, there are photos from quilt shows, sometimes some interesting pattern. I have some archival issues of Quilting Art on DVDs, but buying regularly quilt magazines from US would be to expensive for me.

  8. I recently bought some older copies of American Quilter magazine at a flea market and really have enjoyed them. I do like Quilting Arts, too! Thanks for the giveaway:)

  20. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of Quilting Arts and Stitch. I've watched QA on tv (until our local PBS cancelled all quilting shows) and receive their quilting daily emails. I do not have any subscriptions of my own, and read my mother's quilting magazines. Of those, Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting is the one I would pick. It's an easy read and usually gives me an idea or two.

  21. Quilting Arts is my favorite but I don't have much time to try many of the ideas. I must say that I will never tire of holding magazines in my hand and turning real pages. Just call me old- fashioned! :)

  34. I'm a Graphic Designer and Illustrator. I've dabbled in all sorts of arts and crafts, but never quilting. I do a bit of hand sewn applique stuff (ornaments, jewelry, hand and finger puppets etc), but I haven't been near a sewing machine in years. I just bought a used Singer.

    For a long time I have thought that quilting is something I would enjoy and perhaps have a knack for. My illustrations look a bit like figural folk art quilts. Collage is my favorite art medium. The way I collage paper is similar to the way quilters work with fabric. The color, pattern, texture, weight and even elasticity of the available materials inspire the design.

    I haven't really looked at any quilting magazines. But I have found lots of great quilting information and inspiration online in crafting & dyi websites and blogs. I'm probably a fool want to jump from small hand sewn crafts straight to quilting, but such is my nature. My first attempts will probably be disastrous, but I'll learn from my mistakes.

  37. I will buy any magazine that has anything vintage in it. I just love the old quilts. I want to start doing some crazy quilting. The mix of quilting and embellishing with embroidery, buttons and other creative things makes for such a interesting work of art!

  41. I'm just learning to quilt, so the one I like is the "Quilter's How-To Workshop". Can't wait to find more patterns!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. "inspirations", an Australian embroidery magazine. The projects are mostly about embroidery. Recently I started crazy quilting and now I sometimes use the designs of that magazine in my work.

    ReplyDelete
  43. My favorite magazine is Quilting Arts! I LOVE them -- they are so full of ideas and after I look through them, I'm ready to go into my studio and do something new and creative! Stitch magazine is new to me and I've not been able to attain a copy. Sounds very interesting though.

  46. Thanks for the opportunity to win these 2 great magazine issues. I quit ordering magazines several years ago due to the economy and am always greatful when a friend passes one on to me. The only magazine I still get and could not live without is my EGA quarterly Needlearts. I still enjoy looking at back issues for inspiration.

  48. I think my favourite sewing magazine is Threads. It has the easiest to follow instructions and every magazine seems to touch on an a subject I have been researching or working on.
    I recently picked up that very copy of Stitch at a bookstore. I loved it but hasd to put it back as the price was a bit more than I could justify at the time. (I think it is a 15$/issue magazine here in Canada) So winning a copy would be super fabulous!

  53. I have just got into quilting, I should have done so, so much earlier than I have as I used to watch my Grandmother as a child and always wanted to be like her. It's just taken me time to get going and as I thought as a child it looked great to do, and now I know how much fun it is.
