Jacqueline's quilting life began in 1978 when she saw a magazine picture of a Log Cabin-pattern quilt. Right away she had to try her hand at this fascinating work. Since then she has taught herself and tried over the years to reach a level of perfection, not to show off, but because she loves the beauty she can achieve through my designs. Her goal is to inspire quilters all over the world with beauty and color.
She has always been creative, but quilting has hooked her. To be able to work well at something you love is a miracle and a gift from God.
Her quilts have been displayed worldwide and have won international awards. They are based on traditional designs but with a contemporary and colorful twist.
In 2004 at the encouragement of her father she entered the Open European Quilt Championship and won the Color Trophy. Since that year she has lectured and conducted workshops throughout the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe.
Jacqueline's passion for quilting helps make her an encouraging and personable teacher. She loves to share her enthusiasm for her designs with others and to bring them to a different and higher level where they can find their own artistic skills. She also shows her students that quilts that may seem difficult in a picture are actually not that hard after all.
She lives in the Netherlands in the old and beautiful city of Delft, famous for Royal Delft porcelain.
