It's time to introduce the 9th designer for the Funky Flowers QAL, and it might not be a surprise to you... it's me! ;o)
Het is tijd om de 9e ontwerpster voor de Funky Flowers QAL voor te stellen en het is misschien geen verrassing... dat ben ik! ;o)
Lets tell you a little bit more about myself!
I'm born in Holland, living in Belgium. I started quilting 23 years ago, at the age of 10. Besides creating patterns and teaching classes, 3 years ago, I started designing fabric collections for our own brand, EQP Textiles. I love antique fabrics and quilts and I use them as an inspiration for my own designs. I like to give them a more fresh and modern touch though, which expresses our unique style.
How does my family feel about my quilt/fabric addiction?
My mother taught me how to quilt. Her addiction is (if possible) far worse then mine! :o) Philippe learned to deal with my love for fabrics and even got to like it so much that we started EQP together! He loves to cut fabrics, but I still need to convince him to also make some stitches ;o)
How many projects am I you working on this moment?
Currently, I'm working on 4 projects, 3 of them are made from our newest fabric collection 'Remembering Tomorrow' (click on the 'Remembering Tomorrow' tag below to find out more) and 1 mini quilt for which I love to use my scraps! I work 99% by hand so it takes some time before large quilts are finished, but I love the whole process.
If I wasn't a professional quilter/designer, what would I like to be doing?
I would probably still be working in Human Resources. I love to help people to find them the perfect job!
Did quilting make me see something of the world that I otherwise wouldn't have seen?
Quilting offers me a lot of chances to travel to lovely places. But Houston, we have a problem... because I still didn't manage to get there ;o)
