Tucker University 501-Corner Beam & Sliver



The Tucker University classes build on each other, but can be taken independent of each other as well. 

1-501 Corner Beam and Sliver

The Corner Beam adds even more unique options and movement to our quilt designs. The combinations and twists and turns makes it look as if the quilter had to work with lots of odd shaped pieces when in fact they did not.

Advance the use of your Corner Beam® a bit further by learning how to create Sliver units and once again make precise piecing look hard when it is easy.

 Your class fee includes class instruction, laminated Tucker University Design Sheet and Sliver Technique Sheet as well as new BlockBuster patterns. We highly recommend that you get a binder to organize all the great info and design sheets.

 Other supplies required for this class may be purchased with a class discount.

Tucker Tools: Corner Beam®  (we recommend adding Invisigrip is to prevent slippage). Please let us know if you need to purchase this tool or if you already have it. 

Magic Wand (tool to mark sewing lines)

Basic Supplies:

Sewing Machine with power/foot cords and manual (as a convenience to you, Cut Up and sew has a limited number of BabyLock Crescendo sewing machines available for rent.  Call the shop to reserve yours: you will need to bring your presser feet/ankle)

                Rotary Cutter and small mat – Be sure to try out a rotating mat at class

                Marking pencil/ruler (around 6x12)

Invisigrip to put on the back of your ruler to keep it from slipping.
