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.
