Tucker University: V-Block tool



Tucker University is a monthly class featuring a tool or pattern from Deb Tucker at Studio 180.

Most ruler sets you have to have precision cutting before you sew. Deb's rulers are more forgiving. With her technique you sew your blocks together first and trim to size. This allows your points to match easier and helps keep them from being cut off. Her rulers are designed to make a wide variety of base blocks that can be combined into hundreds of different patterns limited only by your imagination.

This is a technique class, but you can combine the blocks into a quilt, or table runner, or pillow. Again, you're only limited by your imagination.

The V-Block tool is a must have if you like making quilts with these tall star point units. Sometimes known as “Peaky and Spike”, a nickname attached to the unit about 20 years ago by a famous quilter, Doreen Speckman, this particular shape has perplexed quilters forever.  This tool will create eleven unit size options from 1” finished units to 6” finished units in half inch increments.

This tool is used to create Hi-Lo points and Sidekick units.

On what you will need to bring:

  • The V-Block Ruler (available for purchase if you don't have it already)
  • Rotary Cutter with a good blade
  • Small cutting mat (we have some to share if you don't have a small portable one)
  • 6x12 ruler (this is super handy, but the exact dimensions aren't critical)
1/4 yd of 2 contrasting fabrics
(if you have fat quarters, that will work as well)
