Our EQP story
Ever since I was a little girl, designing has been my passion.
I started quilting in 1995, at the age of 10, when I saw my mother working on her first sampler quilt at a beginners course. The fabrics, the patterns, ... I just loved everything about it! She let me help her cutting and pinning the fabrics. One thing lead to another and that same year I designed and finished my first quilt.
Ten years later, when I was studying history at the University of Antwerp, I started my own little company, called Ellie's Quiltplace, and sold the patterns of my designs. The initial idea was to get some extra income (as you know, life as a student is not easy), but over the years it has turned into a well known pattern company. Let's say a hobby gone wild :o)
In 2015 we (my husband Philippe and I) came up with the 'crazy' idea of creating our own fabric collections. At this moment, our collections such as 'Past & Present', 'Modern Traditions' and 'Remembering Tomorrow' are available in Europe, the USA and Australia via a network of distributors. And the next collections are on their way!
I'm happy to share our creative journey with you and I hope that you enjoy the world of EQP!
