R1, R2, R3 & R 4 : Marianne

Hi, I'm Marianne.
Thanks for allowing me to join in. I was searching for a round robin and this is so different I had to try it.

I've gone off on a different route. Instead of piecing my blocks I am using rubber stamps, inks, paint and sharpies. I will be doing more piecing with step 5.

#1 is the center block with the numbers and the word, both done with rubber stamps
#2 is to the left of center- red purple and blue with stamped stitches.
#3 top has three green stamped patches on what was once a cream swirl print. I darkened it with ink to a golden color
#4 to the right is a basket weave print over colored with purple ink. The dark line is a little over 1/4 inch from the edge so it will still be visible when an if something is added to that side.
Hopefully when I add step #5 I'll be able to get a better photo. The colors are off a bit.


  1. Very nice approach Marianne.

  2. I like this too Marianne. I would like to do much more printing myself. I shall watch how this develops with interest :)

  3. Fabulous, and very interesting!

  4. Very interesting. I may want to incorporate some of these techniques later in my quilt!

  5. Thanks for sharing a peek of your work - very cool, looks like an art quilt! I love seeing everyone's art every day :)

  6. This is a really cool idea! Love it!
