Sewing Machine is Working Overtime

I made fleece blankets for my mother-in-law and father-in-law for Christmas. These blankets are the exact same pattern as the ones I made for my handsome husband and my sister-in-law. Place two fabrics wrong sides together, sew around the edge of the fabric, and cut off excess. You are finished.

I totally forgot to take pictures of the completed blankets. I wanted to get them in the mail to make sure they arrived before Christmas. I do have pictures of the material I used.

I do not know why the colors in the fabric turned bluish when I took a picture. The color in the fabric is actually an antique green with yellow and orange. I paired it with the brown as the complementary color. 

My father-in-laws blanket is the exact same colors as the one I made for my husband. Brown and tan.

My father-in-law is 6'7''. I added another half a yard to the length of his blanket.

I still have to make a blanket for my son. He wanted a gray and charcoal gray blanket.
Here are the colors of his fleece material.

My machine is still giving me fits. Hopefully I can figure out what is going on with this machine while making this blanket. I do enjoy making them.

Everyone, thank you for reading.
Happy Holidays!
