I love Burkholder's!

I hit Burkholder's Fabrics early this morning.  Mostly I picked up fabrics that I will use for bags.  They are all rich and pretty and I love them.

I also picked up the fabric for the borders of the red and white quilt.

The color is not right in the photo but I cannot get Picnik to adjust the color correctly.  It is a deep cherry red.  I was going to use a red tonal but fell in love with this piece.  I found a true white to use for the outer border.  Unfortunately, this quilt has to move to the back burner.  I received some unexpected bag orders and I need to get cracking on them.

Thankfully Hurricane Irene has been downgraded and lost a lot of energy.  We have had a very wet August in Southeast Pennsylvania and there is still a lot of concern that trees will fall during this storm.  I guess that means I need to sew as much as I can before the electricity (possibly) goes out.  I have to sew.  Darn the bad luck!!

Hope you are safe and dry wherever you are...


  1. I may just have to place an order with you for some of that red fabric. Love the Japanese summer fan look to the pattern!!! Hope your power stays ON!!!!

  2. Used to LOVE Burkholders, then we had a parting of the ways. Looks like our relationshil is on the up-swing again. Boy, do I covet those fabrics!

  3. That's one pretty stack of bag fabrics. And the red border fabric is perfectly perfect.

    Hoping your power stays on and you get those bags made!

  4. As always, I love your fabrics. They scream royalty. Love the rich deep colors. I bet just admiring the fabrics makes sewing with them a joy.

  5. I love Burkholders too! At least the one time I was there. Nothing like it here! Glad you are safe, even if you have no electric!

  6. great purchases..I like Burkholder's too
