This is a project that constructs the pieced border units at the same time as the pieced block units (definitely a two for one deal!) Simple construction methods and Tucker Trimmer 1 and Tucker Trimmer 3 tools let you construct all units without cutting or piecing triangle shapes and then gives you the added benefit of trimming down for super high precision. The large setting pieces can easily be trimmed with the Tucker Trimmer III tool. A very simple project to make. Size: 72” x 92”

Skill level:  Confident Beginner

The Tucker Trimmer I Tool is required for this pattern.  The Tucker Trimmer III and Quilter’s Magic Wand are highly recommended.  These tools are available from the instructor during class, or are available at your local quilt shop.
