02/20/2024 Tucker University - February - 1-201 V Block

Tucker University

Tucker University is an exciting opportunity to help quilters build their skills and accuracy in piecing. We will meet once a month and explore one ruler per session. This program is designed to teach you how to obtain accurage size squares, half squares and much more.
Have you cut your pieces perfectly, only to have them sew together too small or come out wonky? You're posititve you cut right, but something went wrong and you can't figure out what? Then this is the course for you.
There is no pattern for a finished quilt with this course, but you can build a sampler quilt from the units you make if you so choose. If so, please come in for suggested yardage to buy of each fabric to do so.

Call us (423-629-6411), come in or sign up online! You will be provided a supply list for each class.

1-201 V Block Construction

If you are seeing stars in your future then you have just found your new best friend, the V Block. Making stars is not the only thing the V Block can do to improve your piecing techniques. Once you learn how to use the V Block, you will not go back to those plastic templates you have been tracing and slicing. Or connect a V Block with a half square triangle and watch the curves develop. The possibilities are only limited to your imagination.

Push the use of your V Block a bit further by learning how to create Sidekicks and High/low units. You will amaze your quilting friends by thinking that you made a difficult unit, when in fact the use of the V Block made your life so easy.
