Linen is a new fabric to my game, but so many quilters use it all the time, and I was curious. I ventured to Joanns a few weeks back and luckily found it on sale for $9 a yard and figured it was the perfect opportunity to "test the waters" so to speak. I did wash it to tighten the weave though which I rarely do with my quilting fabrics. I'm still on the fence! It's okay, I suppose, but perhaps if I had bought something besides white, I would have noticed a bigger difference. What do you think?
