    great multi layering methods Review by NULL NULL

    Great dvd, it demonstrates several ways to give your quilts great depth and texture. By multi layering materials and methods. Dyeing your fabrics then painting with the dyes layer by layer. Combining the use of heavy cottons with thin organza fabrics, and using reverse applique to remove some of the applied and dyed fabric, this dvd is full of rich goodness to bring out the artist in you. one thing, the volume was recorded to low. and even with my computer turned to the highest level it was a little difficult to hear.
