2023 -- Tucker University - Freshman - 1-101 Tucker Trimmer 1

Learn how to use a Tucker Trimmer I to create half square triangles, quarter square triangles, and combination units.  With the Tucker Trimmer I alone, a quilter has 33 opportunities to create precise units.  These units are often what we refer to as basic units; therefore, they must be precise to fit nicely with more advanced units.  This is a perfect place for any quilter to begin their journey through the Studio 180 Design set of tools.

The use of a Tucker Trimmer I can be expanded by creating a Shaded Four Patch unit.  By using Deb Tucker's method of strip piecing the construction of a shaded four patch, the quilter eliminates the need to stitch fabrics on an unsecured bias.  This method also eliminates the stretching and puckering within the unit.  Quilter will use their Tucker Trimmer I to finalize their units and then discover a wide array of layouts that can be created with just one block.
