Tucker University is a new and exciting opportunity to help quilters build their skills and accuracy. Each class covers a different Studio 180 Design tool along with ways to expand the use of the tool. Students will make 4" finished units so that they can combine and create new blocks. The creativity is contagious! Quilters will be preserving those crisp clean lines and points by oversizing the components of the Corner Beam. Trimming the unit to the final size with the guidelines provided on the tool ensures precision when combining these units with others. This one tool provides eleven different sizes for trimming. The Corner Beam will add many unique options to your quilt designs. The combinations of twists and turns makes it look as if you had to work with lots of odd shaped pieces when in fact you didn’t. The construction of a Sliver unit advances the use of the Corner Beam and once again makes precise piecing look so difficult! But now you know the key to success!

Rag Basket
- Jun 22, 2018 06:00 pm

“Rag Basket” may be a misleading name for these lovely bowls! Rag bowls have been made since the beginning of time, it seems. They have found some form of bowls that are wrapped into a coil in many archeological digs, that go back for centuries. In more recent history, rag bowls were made in Appalachia along with rag rugs that were known to hold up over time. Rag bowls are sturdy, versatile and fun to make. This class will provide instructions for making a small bowl and hopefully have you leaving with your bowl and all you need to make more. Be careful - it is addictive, but if you are a quilter and/or sewing "nut", you know all about that!!! One very good thing is that it allows you to use up scraps of material that you might otherwise just have sitting around the house.
