Ann Dagg's Quilt

I have recently quilted a version of the following Ann Dagg's Quilt which was pieced and beautifully appliqued by my customer Ruth.  Ruth used the pattern by Di Ford which is based on a quilt by Ann Dagg which is in the Smithsonian, Washington DC.

Ruth's quilt was quilted with feathers curling into the applique in the outer border.  The remainder of the border was quilted with straight lines.

I love the central applique panel of this quilt - I don't (can't) applique myself but appreciate the endless hours this must have taken.  I quilted the central panel with feathers around the outside, a few sprays of feathers amongst the applique and filled the background in with pebbles.

I hope you have enjoyed Ruth's version of this stunning Ann Dagg's Quilt - it was certainly a pleasure to quilt.


  1. A beautiful quilt!! Lovely fabric choices and beautiful applique! You're quilting is perfect as always. I'm always impressed at how your quilting patterns are always just the perfect style to show off the quilters work to it's best.

  2. Beautiful quilting on a beautiful quilt.

  3. Between your quilting and her work, this is an absolutely stunning quilt. :) I really love feathers paired with straight lines, and they're just gorgeous in this setting.

  4. A stunningly beautiful quilt made even more so by your quilting.


I really appreciate your comments - they will appear shortly.
