Tucker Technique Class: Split Rects


Rosella Hanson, a certified Tucker University instructor, will be doing a seven month series of Tucker Technique Classes. This is the second in the series of 7. Learn to make perfect blocks using the Split Rect Tool Ruler.

Learn the Studio 180 Design Tucker Tools in a hands on class. Bring your sewing machine and learn seven of the tools in a class taught by a Studio 180 Design Certified Instructor. Tucker Tools use a sew before you cut method to create blocks that trim up to the perfect size with a 1/4" seam allowance. Deb Tucker creates tools with the math needed to oversize blocks with enough room to trim them down. The tools included will be the Wing Clipper, V Block, Corner Beam, Tucker Trimmer, Square Squared, Diamond Rects and Split Rects. Each tool makes blocks in multiple sizes. Come and make the size (or sizes) you want and learn how to incorporate the Tucker Techniques into patterns you already own. As a bonus there is an optional project for each tool. Stop in the shop to see samples of the blocks and the optional projects.

Classes taught by Rosella Hanson, who is a Certified Instructor for Studio 180 Design. She has a long sewing and quilting history and has been actively quilting for 30 years. She has taught classes, has a pattern line, Get the Point Quilt Designs, designed a Techniques Sheet for Studio 180 Designs and presents new ideas to other Certified Instructors.
