Demo ~ Tucker Trimmer with Jane

Come and play with me as I walk you through how to successfully use the Tucker Trimmer from Studio 180 Design. The Tucker Trimmer is designed to easily support multiple size units, so no need to buy a separate tool for each size. 

I will demonstrate how to make these units:
Half Square Triangles
Quarter Square Triangles
Combination Units
Shaded Four Patch Units
For those of you who may have purchased a Tucker Trimmer at a Quilt Show, and have not used it yet, dust it off, and I’ll show you how to use it to your advantage.
As a Certified Instructor for Studio 180 Design Tools, I can share all of my tips and tricks to make the units listed above easily, perfectly sized and squared up each time.
As you may know, the Half Square Triangle ( HST) is one of the most popular quilt block units and used in many quilts from simple to complex. I’ll share some ideas and quilt blocks that use the HST units or HST units combined with other standard quilt block units to create a wide variety of quilt blocks. 
I’ll show you how to review any pattern that includes a HST unit and make simple changes to the cutting instructions so you can use your Tucker Trimmer to make all of your HSTs.

Instructor Bio: Jane Rosenbush I'm so happy to join the team of instructors at Quilt Central Studio. I?ve been sewing since I was a teenager and began quilting about 20 years ago. I started out slowly, making a wreath wall hanging and then took a block of a month class at a local quilt shop, made my first quilt top. I had a very busy career, working for a large tech company in Northern California, so was only able to quilt now and then.? After taking an early retirement about eight years ago, I?ve been more creative than ever, and fully embraced my love of being a quilt maker. I started my own business, called Rose Bush Quilts and have been teaching classes in Northern California, designing my own quilts and became a Certified Instructor for the set of tools created by Deb Tucker of Studio 180 Design. I?ve come to Southern Arizona for several months a year for the last 15 years, visiting family.? Since 2020 and the COVID crisis, I decided to relocate permanently and have been very happy with that decision. I look forward to meeting some of you in my classes where the main focus will be to share knowledge, learn and mostly importantly, have fun.
