Meet Marquerite from the Netherlands

I love this quilt by Marquerite van Eijck, a friend of Joke van der Veen, both of the Netherlands. She is a very creative quilt artist, isn't she? She says she made this quilt after looking at my book, but she is just being nice. I never would have thought of this! Her quilt makes me want to do my happy dance! Wonderful job, Marquerite!!

This is one of my favs. The selvages really look like books. Joke is definitely the "Queen of Selvages".

YIKES! Joke just emailed me that this quilt was actually made by her friend Marquerite van Eijck. So I have corrected this post.
Awesome job, Marquerite!
