5282023: Tucker University Freshman Year 1-201 V-block / Sidekicks & High Low
If you are seeing stars in your future then you have just found your new best friend, the V Block. Making stars is not the only thing the V Block can do to improve your piecing techniques. Once you learn how to use the V Block, you will not go back to those plastic templates you have been tracing and slicing. Or connect a V Block with a half square triangle and watch the curves develop. The possibilities ar only limited to your imagination.
Push the use of your V Block a bit further by learning how to create Sidekicks and High/Low units. You will amaze your quilting friends by thinking that you made a difficult unit, when in fact the use of the V Block made your life so easy.
