Hello ladies,

I'm not sure this is the right place, but I just want to share this with you all.

Last November I was at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, and that's where I met a lovely Dutch lady. She -Jacqueline de Jonge/Becolourful- is a quilt designer, and makes really stunning quilts. They are so colorful and bright. I instantly fall in love with her designs. It's paper pieced, and so perfectly done. She has a great pattern line, with all kind of difficulties, she even made an instruction DVD, that shows you how to make a Becolourful quilt. 

I think this lovely lady deserves a little attention from us American quilters :)

Wow, you are right.  I googled her name and so many beautiful quilts!  I see where she has been on Ricky Timm;s show. 

I will have to check out more what she has to offer.

Thanks

Patti

I visited her website of course, and there was also a link to her Facebookpage (becolourfulquilts), which is also very inspiring :)

Hi Bridget, it is nice to meet you. You are correct, her quilts are beautiful. Thanks for the info.

Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love
