Tucker University - Freshman Year - Jul 13, 2019 10:00 am
Learn how to use a Tucker Trimmer I to create half square triangles, quarter square triangles, and combination units. With the Tucker Trimmer I alone, a quilter has 33 opportunities to create precise units. These units are often what we refer to as basic units, therefore they must be precise to fit nicely with more advanced units. This is a perfect place for any quilter to begin their journey through the Studio 180 Design set of tools. You will be signing up for 3 classes at one time. There is a total of 13 classes in this Freshman Year.
You will also learn how to expand the use of your Tucker Trimmer I by creating a Shaded Four Patch unit. By using Deb Ticker's method of strip piecing the construction of a shaded-four patch, the quilter eliminates the need to stitch fabrics on an unsecured bias. This method also eliminates the stretching and puckering within the unit. quilters will use their Tucker Trimmer I to finalize their units and then discover a wide array of layouts that can be created with just one block.
