Class and Events schedule for Patchwork Quilts in Hamilton, Montana.
Tucker University 201 V Block, Sidekicks, and High/Lows 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 you 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.

Cost: $ 17.00
Tucker University 301 Wing Clipper I, Pickets, and Quickets Learn the simple secrets to creating crisp, clean flying geese effectively and quickly. This method can be applied to any pattern that requires flying geese units. Since you usually have to make hundreds of these units at a time, why not make them perfect every time? Expand the use of your Wing Clipper I by learning how to make Pickets and Quickets. Once you begin to recognize these units, you will be surprised how often they appear in patterns from your favorite magazines and designers. You will want to add Pickets and Quickets to your border options.

Cost: $ 17.00
Tucker University 401 Square Squared and Little Houses The Square Squared unit can be found within blocks as well as sashing. Since this unit is often used to connect other units, the points are extremely valuable for the design to work without interruption. You will save those points with the Square Squared tool. A secondary benefit to using Deb Tucker?s method of creating Square Squared units is that you will not waste fabric. It?s a win-win situation. Expand the use of your Square Squared tool by learning how to make little houses. Little houses have been disguised in borders and have shown up in some star blocks. You will be astounded where these units show up.

Cost: $ 17.00
Tucker University 501 Corner Beam The Corner Beam adds even more unique options to your quilt designs. The combinations and the twists and turns makes it look as if the quilter had to work with lots of odd shaped pieces when in fact they did not. The construction of a Sliver unit advances the use of the Corner Beam and once again makes precise piecing look hard when it is easy.

Cost: $ 17.00
Tucker University 601 Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star Basic Construction Volcanoes don?t belong in the center of an eight-pointed star and they won?t happen to you when you use the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star tool. And, by the way, there will be no y-seams. Be thoroughly stunned when you learn how to make a Lemoyne Star using a strip method. You will be able to make blocks as small as 3? all the way up to 12? with the same level of accuracy.

Cost: $ 17.00
Tucker University 701 Corner Pop Stop throwing away half of those squares you used to pop off a corner and start saving your fabric by using the Corner Pop. Before you know it, you will be popping off the corners of every unit. The Corner Pop does just that, it helps to add a pop of color to any unit and can add a secondary pattern to your quilt.

Cost: $ 17.00
Tucker University 801 Split Rects Give me an A, give me a B, and L and an R . . .what does that spell? Nothing! So then leave those letters at home along with the plastic templates that you would have to trace and learn how to make crisp, clean half rectangles or what Deb Tucker calls a Split Rects. By using the Split Rects tool, you do not have to worry about shaving your plastic templates any more. There are 8 different size options with just one tool. Your stars will twinkle with these strong points.

Cost: $ 17.00
Tucker University 901 Diamond Rects If the storm at Sea pattern is on your bucket list, but you don?t want to paper piece it, then the Diamond Rects has just become your new best friend. Once you learn how to make Diamond Rects units you will no longer avoid, what you thought, was a complex technique. The Diamond Rects is seen in the Studio 180 Design pattern entitled Sea Glass as well as Sugar Creek?s Smooth Sailing. Don?t miss the boat, jump on board now.

Cost: $ 17.00
Tucker University 1001 Large Square Squared You asked for it, you got it. More squares inside of squares inside of squares. The Large Square Squared is a perfect format to feature any fussy cuts or embroidery pieces. But it doesn?t stop there! You will fall in love with the snail?s trail block when you use the Large Square Squared.

Cost: $ 17.00
