2 More Small Table Mats Quilted

Yesterday I completed the quilting on the second of two Christmas table mats made from the leftover blocks of the quilt that serves as my table cloth during the Christmas season. I quilted both of them with YLI "Festival" on the top and Essentials "Forest" in the bobbin. Once again, the Essentials thread quilted beautifully and of course the YLI was also super to use, as usual. I am just so pleased with the Essentials thread, particularly when you factor in the ultra economical price compared to the other threads out there. So far I've been able to find a matching color for the bobbin for all of the small quilts I've been quilting. The color palate is absolutely gorgeous!

I've got threads and quilting patterns selected for the next two quilts in the que, so I'm hoping to get them at least basted in the next day or two. I have one more solid day of work before I am on vacation until January 11th. I can't wait. I will relish every day off as I expect that there will be tax returns already coming in for prep the week I get back, in addition to the returns already in process for tax periods that ended prior to 12/31, and payroll filings due on 1/31. It definitely won't be slow again until after April 15th.
