I discovered in an old fashioned cedar armoire about 10 different quilt tops already sewn together by my mothers deceased biological mother (she was adopted) hanging on worn out hangers and still in good condition (moths never got to them) theyve probably been sitting there about 10-15 years...my question is...I kinda would like to finally make them into actual quilts...anyone have any suggestions as to where I can find information on putting these together?

Just finished MMario's Queen Annes Lace!!! Took me four months to makeit so im super excited to have it done!!! I used 3 skeins of Knit Picks Gloss Lace in the Cyan colorway and it turned out beautiful!!! I would so knit this pattern again although after this behemoth of a project I think im going to take a break from lace for a little while and knit a few pairs of socks! HAH! Here is a photo of the shawl blocking, darn near took up the entire room! I hope everyone had a good holiday and ate lots of yummy food!!!

Not that I got confused about the pattern and everything, I did everything right in my eyes, I used Emily Ockers circular cast on and all was going according to plan.

Right now im in Copenhagen on business and today I decided to take a walk around the city and see some sights. Among the numerous sex shops and street hookers. I found a charming little yarn shop which had a gorgeous selection of yarns but one thing that stood out in particular...a lace shawl out of kid mohair and merino, I commented on how beautiful it was and the shopkeeper said she had just finished it a couple of weeks ago. Said it didnt use a lot of yarn and showed me the yarn on the rack...
