My name is Jacqueline de Jonge and I am self-thought quilter. I became interested in quilt making in 1978. I love to make beautiful quilts and enjoy working on my intrigued designs. My goal is to inspire quilters all over the world with my “BeColourful” designs.
I always was creative in many different ways but when I saw a quilt, I was hooked. I love to make quilts and to do something that you really love, is a miracle and a gift of God. I have made quilts that have won international awards and displayed my quilts worldwide. My quilts are based on traditional designs but with a contemporary and colorful twist.
Since 2004 I have lectured and conducted workshops throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia. Several interviews in newspapers and magazines were published and in 2011 I was profiled and featured on the online Quilt Show with Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson. That same Quilt Show featured the Happiness pattern and instruction DVD for the Summer class of 2014. The AQS published “The BeColourful Quilt Collection” in July 2014. In this book you will find about 50 of my most stunning designs.
I live in the Netherlands in the beautiful city of Delft. The city well known for the Royal Delft Ware. I live close to my family and I’m passionate for my spoiled ;-) Siamese cat, Mr. Pooky and my rescued Greyhound Amy.
My way of patchwork/quilting is based on the paper foundation technique, using the sewing machine. The points, stars and flying geese are very sharp and beautiful. I love to work with colors, and my quilts are real eyecatchers at your wall.
In 2015, I started working exclusively with Anthology Fabrics, sharing creative ideas as a designer and a textile artist.
