Inge Mardal and Steen Hougs

The following quilts were done by the husband and wife team of Inge Mardal and Steen Hougs from Chantilly, France. I have followed their work for several years, first seeing it Paducah and being awestruck at the sheer beauty of them. They are a very interesting couple and I could barely break away from their website to type this. One paints the quilt top and the other quilts it. Each piece of work presented here was at the Houston IQF show this year. They are wholecloth, handpainted, and free motion machine quilting.
