My quilting life began in 1978 when I saw a magazine picture of a Log Cabin-pattern quilt. Right away I had to try my hand at this fascinating work - my sister still has the resulting pink Log Cabin. Since then I have taught myself and tried over the years to reach a level of perfection, not to show off, but because I love the beauty I can achieve through my designs. My goal is to inspire quilters all over the world with beauty and color. I have always been creative, but quilting has hooked me. To be able to work well at something you love is a miracle and a gift from God. I started my BeColourful pattern line in the Netherlands in 2004. BeColourful is now a family-owned and operated business in the United States since 2007.
