I taught the Honeycomb Waffle, Too class yesterday at Cut Up and Quilt. It was a great lesson in choosing fabrics of different values to make an eye-catching optical illusion. Once the quilters got some blocks on the design wall, we talked about how some of the values related to others.

We noticed that the darks didn't always have to be the same level of darkness.
Some lights were really light...some were not so light. It didn't matter, as long as they related well to the other two fabrics in their set.

I will be teaching this class again in March, so I asked them to bring their finished tops to show that class what they can do. (it was a thinly disguised challenge!)
