“Precision Piecing at It’s Finest” by Jackie Mowday from Deb Tucker's Studio 180 Designs
Have you ever cut your strips perfectly, sewed that perfect 1/4” seam, made those flying geese or 4 patch just like that pattern told you to and nothing measures perfectly. Ever do a block exchange with your friends or guild and the blocks are suppose to be 12 1/2” and
some are 12” and some are 13”.

Wouldn’t you like to get those perfect points on you star blocks and flying geese. If so than Studio 180 tools are for you. The premise behind the tools is that you make your block units slightly oversized and then trim them down for precision piecing. There is a Studio 180 tool for every block unit out there - 1/2 square triangles, combination units, hour glass units, flying geese, V - block, lemoyne star, hunter star and more. Not only can you use these tools with the Studio 180 patterns and other patterns that call for the tools but you can also learn how to “Tuckerize” any pattern that you have. I will show several quilts using each tool or multiple tools than discuss how to “Tuckerize” a pattern.

Winter Wonderland (Paperpiece) Table Runner

Date: August 16th - 9:30 to 4:30
Instructor: Joaanne Hubbard

Cost: $30 plus pattern and supplies

See Supply List.

Get a jump on your Christmas projects and make this spectacular Winter Wonderland table runner. This class is a great opportunity to learn paper piecing following the Judy Niemeyer process. Her patterns are simple and methodical, which make very complex looking designs easy to assemble. The runner, which measures 20” x 74” when complete, is made from four – 16” blocks. If you don’t want your runner to be that long, the pattern offers a variety of options such as making pillows, smaller runners, or a table topper.
