September is Time for Quilting

And it's September (though the weather outside may still be August-y)!  Seems like this was the fastest summer on record.  But I must say, yet again, that I am ready for Fall.  Yesterday, I was even overcome by the need (the NEED!) to knit something.

But what's really been on my mind lately?  Quilting.  Now, I'm no quilter, but I can't shake the thought that it's time to learn.  Maybe with something small - for that baby boom I was talking about a couple weeks ago.  While I contemplate it a little more, feast your eyes on these delicious looking quilts.

Are you a quilter? 
What do you love about it? 
How did you get started? 
Please post links to your quilting projects in the comments - we'd love some more inspiration!
What Japanese (quilting or otherwise) fabrics would you like to see Omiyage.ca carry?

P.S. - Love that Tokyo Subway Map Quilt?  There's a Tokyo Subway Map Quilt-Along on Oh Fransson!  And it's for a big version (a 1600 tiny square version to be exact.)

  1. i'm fairly new to sewing and quilting myself, only having started sewing a year ago and quilting 8 months ago. i learned by reading tutorials online and just trying things out myself! my first quilt was a pinwheel baby quilt and i even tried free-motion quilting! it's easier than it seems, and so much fun! all my sewing and quilty projects are on my blog!

    i just bought some adorable elephants from your store, and i'd love to see more japanese fabrics - kokka, enchino, heather ross, kei honeycombs, nani iro, just to name a few!

  2. Thanks for commenting. I might just have to brave up and go for it! I'll be sure to pop by and check out your projects. And thanks for recommendations for fabric - we've got our eye on a number of those, but it's always good to know what else people are looking for!
