This video lesson will get me going on doing something with my photos. I purchased it because I was intrigued about what Leslie calls her crazy, crazy piecing and quilting for the backgrounds of her mini-quilts. However, I did not realize it involves digital manipulation of the photos. I will re-watch this part carefully as the video is a bit blurry and fast-paced and spend time figuring it out with my own computer. Now, I know where to start. Thank you.

Ideas are good, but quality of DVD is not.
Lesley Riley shows us how she makes memory quilts with old photos, and this is fine and inspiring, but when Lesley shares the photo editing hints in Adobe® Photoshop® it is not possible to see what she is doing. The screen in Photoshop is unsharp and impossible to read. Not good enough! Review by Lisbit (Posted on 3/6/2015)
