After winning the Color Trophy of the Open European Quilt Championship in 2004, Jacqueline started her BeColourful pattern line in the Netherlands.

Jacqueline became interested in quilt making in 1978. She loves to make quilts, and tries to reach a level of perfection, not to show people how hard she can work, or to show people that she is a perfectionist in her designs and color choices, but because she loves to make beautiful quilts and enjoys working on her designs. Her goal is to inspire quilters all over the world with her beautiful and colorful designs. Her quilts are based on traditional designs, but with a contemporary and colorful twist. Since 2004 she has lectured and conducted workshops throughout the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe. Jacqueline designs her own patterns, she also has her own Batik line of Fabric designed by her.
