I can still sew!

After months of not sewing at all, I put together this quilt top. In a day. Now I just have to put the borders on it and, um, quilt it. I really want to quilt it myself with my Bernina 830, it's a lap blanket so it seems like it's of a manageable size. but there are a few obstacles in my way. First, I have to practice quilting. I am not so good at it. I don't have a walking foot, so I'm going to have to get good at free-motion quilting. Second, I have to find a way to stretch the quilt so that the backing, batting and quilt top don't pucker. Third, I have to clean off my sewing table so there is room to actually quilt. I'm aiming to have this quilt done by the end of the year.
