Mixed Media Stitched Square

In the last issue of Cloth Paper Scissors they issued a challenge for a mixed media stitched square. This is my offering. I used Lesley Riley's TAP paper for a transfer of a combination of image and painting and then I free motion quilted the square. I always forget how much I love to FMQ! I added some bits of paint for definition and then bound the edges with some leftovers of purple cloth and a piece of 'paint wipe up' cloth that I had been saving for some time, thinking that one day I would find a use for it.

My submissions to CPS never seem to make the mark, but I did have fun making this fun little square!

This is what the back looks like, it's easier to see the FMQ stitching on this I think.
