Holiday Week Tute: 70s with a Modern Twist!

The week between the holidays often seems to be a week in limbo...some people are at work, some aren't, some are traveling and most are simply biding their time until New Year's Eve for another chance to celebrate. 

We thought we'd help this limbo week pass more quickly with a quick and easy tutorial--the Manly Quilt from Penny of Sew Take a Hike. She embraced her inner 70s child and gave it a modern twist to create a simple patchwork tied 
quilt with men in mind, using a few prints from Bellissimo, all 24 colors of Burlap, and the plaid taupe from Paintbox/Shadows.

Here's a peek at her quilt, all cozy in the snow:
