Tucker University #1

Tucker University is a series of technique classes for the Studio 180 Design Tools & Techniques.  Each class will cover a Tucker tool to help you build your skill and accuracy.  Each session will be devoted to mastering the ruler.  Practice what you learn by creating 4" units using the techniques learned and then combining them into 12" blocks, which could be combined for a sampler quilt.

Fabric Requirements
Before coming to class, you will need to have your fabric cut according to the directions on the Design Sheet which you receive at time of enrollment.  The fabric requirements are healthy amounts so that you can make your own design choices.

For course 1-101, we recommend the following yardage... *
3/8 yard Focal Fabric
3/8 yard Background                                                                                         
1/4 yard of a coordinating or contrasting fabric with the focal fabric
1/4 yard of a coordinating or contrasting fabric with the focal fabric

*You may choose to use scraps, or you could coordinate the colors to combine together for a quilt.  Wendy will be using a fat quarter bundle of Bella Solids to begin with, although this amount of fabric will not get you through the entire 12 classes if you choose to continue.  

Tucker University is a 12-month program that we have divided into two 6-month sessions for your convenience.  Payment is required for the full 6 months, with no obligation to continue.

Choose either the evening session which will meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, or the daytime session which meets on the 2nd Thursday.
