Tucker University is at Quilt Country!

“What is Tucker University?” you may be asking. Tucker University is a series of classes using Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Designs tools and technique sheets to make accurate and precise units.

If you’ve ever wanted to make accurate Flying Geese blocks, V blocks, Corner Beam blocks or Lemoyne Star blocks (just to name a few) then these are the classes for you.

Nikki Mundt is teaching several sessions of the classes from 6 – 9 pm. The cost of each class will be $15.00. The “Tool of the Month”,

Technique and Design sheets for that tool will be required for class and will be available at Quilt Country. As a bonus, a binder set up with dividers and page protectors will be given to students who sign up for all six classes at the beginning of the series.

Each monthly class will focus on a specific tool and the many ways it can be used to make units that can be combined with other basic units to make a wide array of layouts.
