Eyes Wide Open

Photo transfer on cotton and organza, machine piecing, applique and quilting, hand embroidery
Photo transfer was the technique I used for this interpretation. I took many photos of my old doll, edited them in Photoshop to select the head and provide a solid background, increased the saturation by 25 %, and printed them on cotton and ExtravOrganza by Jacquard. Then I began arranging them until I found something I thought worked, and added the quotation, also printed on organza.
This is my interpretation of the March photo shown below. You can read more about it on the Interpret This blog and see other quilters' versions in the coming days.
I chose not to use a binding, and used a facing technique I read somewhere that puts squares folded into triangles in the corners. I don't recommend it, because it creates too much bulk. Next time, I'll go back to having a join in the center of the sides.
