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.
