Mill House Spring Quilting In Progress

 On my Juki today is the Mill House Spring quilt.  Before quilting begins, I always clean and oil my machine and put on a new needle.

 When I loaded this quilt onto the frame I was thinking,  "I'll just do a quick all over design and finish it in an afternoon."

 Ha! Ha! Ha!  That didn't happen.  I changed my mind and tried this new swirly onion quilting in the green outer border.  I like it.

 I accented it with small back and forth lines in the gold border.

 Here the borders are side by side.

 The hourglass blocks in the quilt center came out a little more puckered than I would like.  To disguise the imperfect blocks, I'm doing some heavy quilting.

 The pink triangles are getting quilted with vertical or horizontal lines, depending on their orientation.

 The white triangles are getting quilted with small pebbles.

 I've quilted three or four rows in so far, and it's looking pretty good!  

The pattern for the Mill House Spring quilt is available in my Etsy shop, here:  Mill House Spring Quilt Pattern.  If you sew one, please share a pic.  I would love to see your version.
