Quilter's Journey

Tucker University Freshman Year

Quilters Journey
Tucker University Freshman Year

Tucker University Freshman Year is Saturday, February 11, 2023
Time:  10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

1-201 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 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.  

Required tools:  V Block*
Required Technique Sheet:  Sidekick and High/Low*
Required Design Sheet:  V Block (you will receive this in class)

*These items can be purchase at Quilters Journey

Basic Sewing Supplies
Sewing machine with power cords and manual (just in case)
Machine needles
Snips or trimming scissors
Seam Ripper

Basic Quilting Supplies
Rotary cutter with a sharp blade
Marking Pencil (Mechanical will do)
Small cutting mat
Straight edge ruler approx. 6" x 12" or so
Invisigrip (optional)

Fabric Requirements:
  Fabrics will be cut during class.  Therefore, the fabric requirements are healthy amounts so that you can make your own design choices during class.  You may even want to use some of your scraps from your last class here.

For course 1-201, we recommend the following yardage:
5/8 to 3/4 yard Focal Fabric
3/8 yard Background
1/4 yard of coordinating or contrasting fabric with the focal fabric

See you Saturday!
