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 Houston Quilt Market, the patterns have been distributed around the world and have been published in a number of magazines.  The fabric might date but the design does not.

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.  This is now her favourite quilting technique with many of the quilts donated.

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 more creative 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.
