I was so excited when I purchased the Quilting Arts TV series 300, 400, and 500. While watching the 400 series episode 406, fabric portraits with Maria Elkins I was looking forward to being able to make fabric portraits.That is why I bought that particular one.  I noticed  the instructions were rushed through and something said about all this will be on the website. When I came to the website looking for further instructions I found this. Do I understand correctly that in order to learn the process on making fabric protraits I have to purchase another DVD? Isn't this a little misleading.

Maria may be the teacher but her student Cousette is the one selling it for me!  Her work is magnificent and this is where she learnt it.
