Tucker University #10 Tuesday July 16 at 2:30-5:00 Large Square Squared & Tucker University #11 Tuesday July 16 at 5:30 - 9:00 Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star Advanced I: Strip Pieced, Liberty, & Banded Lemoyne Star


These 2 classes are combined on this day as last month we canceled the Large Square Squared class. Earlier in Tucker University, you learned how to make a Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star. In this session, with just a little strip piecing technique, we are going to show you three additional ways to use your Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star to add extra spark to your blocks. The strip Pieced Lemoyne can have equal sized strips or you can add a narrower strip to give your star an accent. The Liberty Lemoyne is a classic block typically made with templates or paper piecing. Not anymore! The Banded Lemoyne makes a great bold statement. Many of you have been looking for a larger Square Squared tool to make big Diamond Square units for your modern quilts or for framing your beautiful embroidery. But what would you say if we told you could also use it to make tacked Squares (like in Storm at Sea), Pineapple Blocks, Snail’s Trail Blocks, and a fancy version of a Flying Goose we’re calling Birds of Paradise? With all this, we know you’re itching to give it a try! Tucker University is a series of 12, monthly classes; 3 hours in length. Each class introduces the quilter to a Deb Tucker Studio 180 Design tool and all of the uses of that tool. Quilters will learn how to make fundamental quilt units with high precision and low stress! Our teacher, Carol Gibson-Weik, is a Certified Instructor for Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design. She enjoys teaching the benefits of the design tools and techniques. Her mission is to create a fun, educational, and relaxing environment for all levels of quilters.
