Spring Location: Tucker University - (Class 5 of 12) - 1-501 - Corner Beam & Sliver

Join us for Tucker University: Freshman Year - Class 5 of 12 - 1-501 Corner Beam & Sliver!

The Corner Beam adds even more unique options to your quilt designs. The combinations and the twists and turns make it look as if the quilter had to work with a lot of odd shaped pieces when in fact they did not. The construction of a Sliver unit advances the use of the Corner Beam and once again makes precise piecing look hard when it is easy.
