Christmas is sooo close

Last night I was already for bed at 7:30. I was so tired but when my Daughter-in-law wanted to sew I perked right up. We proceeded to make 4 pillow cases and quilted a fleece blanket she had for her oldest.
Here I'm quilting in ;my nightgown and you can see the thickness of the pile of the double sided fleece blanket. The pressure foot made dark and light stripes while it was quilting. The thread is King Tut, a heavier thread, in Sunflower, a dark gold.
You cannot see the thread at all, but the depression is there. I quilted it twice, hoping that the thread would show if it was thicker. It looks great.
