I hope my stateside friends had a fun and safe 4th of July! We had a relaxed day, full of fun here!  I’ve been waiting to share my newest Craftsy Workshop with you – Quilting With Linen!  I used 100% linen to make this manly quilt.

Happy Quilting ~ Amy

Are you familiar with Craftsy yet?  They have a great site, and a great community growing around the classes and workshops being offered.  You should run over there and make yourself an account!  The Workshop section has detailed, online patterns and the Graduation workshop includes a pdf download straight from Modern Basics.
