The Northern Neighbours Workshop uses 3 of Deb Tucker’s  Rulers - So what makes quilting with Studio 180 principles and rulers so exciting?

Innovation in Traditional Quilt Construction

Traditional quilt construction has suffered from a reputation for having inaccessible, complicated blocks with limited creative opportunities. However, with her exciting new ruler series, Deb Tucker of Studio 180 Design is revolutionizing the art of traditional quilting. Based on the simple principle of making units larger and squaring them up, piecing traditional quilt tops has become easier and more precise.

Creative Potential You Never Thought Possible

Deb Tucker’s rulers are also making traditional quilting more versatile, opening opportunities for creative design previously inaccessible to the novice quilter. With her broad comprehension of traditional quilting, colour theory, and piecing techniques Carla is uniquely qualified to facilitate your creative process using Deb Tucker rulers.
