Dougal Ann Walker is the designer of The Freckles Collection of whimsical stitchery and appliqué patterns. Combining hand-work with quilting techniques into a wall-hanging was the basic premise. Since first exhibiting at Quilt Market in 2000, the patterns have been distributed around the world and have been published in a number of magazines.
After moving to Ladner, B.C. in 2012 and working at The Quilted Bear for 4½ years, her interest shifted to scraps and teaching classes. Learning new techniques and the multitude of ways that scraps can be incorporated into a quilt became the challenge.
Art quilts are another part of her quilting personae. The world is full of inspiration: to take an idea, research it and develop it into a wall-hanging, quite often using many techniques until the desired effect is reached. It is one of the best parts of her quilting journey. A few of her pieces have traveled to different shows and many have won awards at Guild shows and challenges.
