Abstract: We show that if $ \rho $ is a quasiconformal mapping of the plane whose dilatation satisfies a certain quadratic Carleson measure condition relative to an Ahlfors-David curve $ \Gamma $ then $ \rho $ is differentiable almost everywhere on $ \Gamma $ and $ \log \vert\rho \prime \vert \in {\text{BMO}}$. When $ \Gamma $ is chord-arc we show that its image is a Bishop-Jones curve. If the Carleson norm is small then we show that $ \rho $ is absolutely continuous on $ \Gamma $, the image of $ \Gamma $ is an Ahlfors-David curve, and $ \rho \prime = {e^a}$, where $ a \in {\text{BMO}}$ with a small norm.
