01/16/2024 Tucker University Month 1 - Tucker Trimmer 1 - Shaded Four Patch
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.
We will start with the Tucker Trimmer 1 & Shaded Four Patch lesson.
1-101 Tucker Trimmer 1 - Learn how to use a Tucker Trimmer 1 to create half square triangles, quarter
square triangles, and combination units. With the Tucker Trimmer 1 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.
The use of a Tucker Trimmer can be expanded by creating a Shaded Four Patch unit. By using Deb
Tucker’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 1 to finalize their units and then discover a wide
array of layouts that can be created with just one block.
