A successful class......

This is one student's fabric pieces divided into light, light medium, dark medium, and dark.  I tried to provide a good assortment of colors and values in the pack of squares they worked with.  Here is where I posted about this exercise 2 years ago.  I had 13 very enthusiastic students who all did a great job with the exercises I ran them through.  I had them fill out an evaluation form at the end of class and had some good suggestions for improvement in this class.

I do have trouble with the sorting values in fabric. I could probably use that class!

If I am reading this right, being in your class means using your fabric. Sign me up!!

Sounds like a rewarding time if they all got it. Shows you are a good teacher. Chris

I just read your older post on your value trick. Thanks! I will definitely try it sometime.

I think this is something everyone has trouble with. I am sure they learned a lot in your class.

I cant sort colors well. But my wife does a fantastic job and helps me out on that. Is that cheating? Like mom doing your home work when your a kid.

I'm so glad that you put a link to that previous post. I wish I had seen it before my last quilt, but will use that method in upcoming quilts. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for the old post, it makes it so clear. Have you thought about writing a book about color? Online class? Color exercises like this would be great!

I am not surprised that your students were enthusiastic. I have a feeling you're an excellent teacher, AND, you bring beautiful fabric! What could be better than that?!

Hi Wanda,
I should have refreshed my memory about your past post prior to sewing my blocks. Oh well. I use the "wing it" method of fabric matching (and that doesn't always work so hot).

You mentioned I should start a blog, and I recently started two of them:
