Santa Diversity! We had a great class on Monday with the stocking pattern Here Comes Santa. Love how everyone's Santas look so different but came together so easily with Deb Tucker's tools.

Wait no more! 2 new tools and 2 new patterns! I'm especially happy that I can share the Snowdrops pattern with you finally. This is the quilt that I longarm quilted for Deb this past spring. This pattern is even more stunning in person!!!

It's time to start our bonanza of new Fall releases! Introductions below! You'll find more details here: bit.ly/Studio180-Fall2019

For those of you who can't live without your Corner Pop, now we've got three times the love! You know how the Corner pop makes a nice, symmetrical, chubby corner. Well, our two new Corner Pops pop a spikey corner and a spikier corner with a 2:1 or 3:1 ratio. Just imagine what you can do with that!

Our new Water Lily pattern introduces a slick new technique for my Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star tool that gives an amazing secondary pinwheel of points in the star. Spectacular!

And then finally we have Snowdrops, a pattern repeatedly requested since we shared the image of my sweet little Blaze kitty giving it a thorough "cat inspection" last year. 😸 This one is great for those of you with a full Tucker Toolbox or wanting to build your collection fast - using the Corner Beam, V Block, Corner Pop (the classic, original version), and the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star tool.

We hope you are as excited about our new releases as we are. Let us know what you think in the comments below!

I love my Wing Clipper 1 and use it all the time. Now I can say I've used my Wing Clipper 2, too. It was perfect for these little babies that finished 3/4" x 1 1/2". I made a miniature version of Deb Tucker's pattern, Flight Path.

Exciting news!!!  You all are going to love these new tools!!!  Stay tuned.....

Fans, I can't tell you how excited I am to share my two (yes, you read that right, TWO!) newest tools with you all . . . but I'm still sworn to secrecy 🤐 I promise you won't have to wait long to find out the full story though. All I can tell you right now is that these tools are a collaboration with another fabulous team of designers, and that this image here may provide a bit of a hint as to what they are!

Anyone care to hazard a guess?

What a wonderful wedding weekend we had this past weekend! Our son married his beautiful Katie and we couldn't be happier :) The wedding quilt was finished just in time and thank goodness I took pictures at home since was too busy and having way too much fun to take photos of it hanging at the reception. The back of the quilt is a Rapid Fire Hunter Star pattern from the Studio 180 Design Royal Treasures book. The front of the quilt was made with wishes solicited from wedding guests prior to the wedding. My husband, the graphics guy, sized and modified the paper documents sent from guests per a plan I was modifying along the way. He also photo-shopped pictures to fit the plan. Although guests' deadline for documents was June 10, we received them up until into July! The last Spoonflower (fabric printer) order shipped to us on July 14. The wedding was July 27 :/ Needless to say, it has been a busy few weeks. But I'd do it again in a heartbeat!

Oh my gosh! Deb's new signature fabric collection is beautiful! But that's all I can say.... You'll have to wait until the big reveal in the fall :)

I mailed 6 quilts to Island Batik yesterday, they were all made in my fall signature collection. It wouldn’t have been possible to send these amazing looking quilts without my talented machine quilters. Julie Belin of Blue Oaks Quilting, Patricia Heintz of Seams, Etc., Cliff Goggans of Sager Creek Quilts, Rosella Hanson of Get the Point Designs, Dot Fabian, and Mara Novak of Flying Goose Custom Quilting all did an amazing job!

A little sneak peak of the backs with that amazing quilting!

A beautiful pattern! It incorporates traditional flying geese with a new technique Deb calls Geese on the Edge. I know Lynne Daconta would love this one ;)

Look right there, it's our newest pattern: Prickly Pear! From the genius mind of Sarah Furrer, this marvelous new addition to our Modern 180 line is full of pointy geese while still leaving space to let your machine quilter go wild! This, along with Doves of Hope and Arabesque will be available later today on my shop: http://bit.ly/NewStudio180Releases

MAQ Registration opens this morning! I'm so excited to be able to offer three classes at Mid-Appalachian Quilter's Retreat this summer. This is a wonderful - VERY reasonable - and FUN 3 days of quilty pleasure. Please check it out :) Let me know if you have any questions.

Happy Registration Eve MAQers!

Registration begins tomorrow at 10 am. I know many of you are excited by this prospect. It would be a good idea to refresh your browser before you register.

There has been concern expressed to us about the reduced number of single person bedrooms available. Late today, Gettysburg contacted us with the possibility of additional single rooms at another dorm. We don't have specifics yet as to how many rooms are available but we have been told that they are apartment style with each apartment containing 5 single bedrooms.. The pricing would be the same as Apple Single.

If you would prefer a single room but there are no more available when you register:

1. Register and pay for housing (double room)
2. Send an email to [email protected] to have your name put on a wait list.

We will use that information to let the college know what our additional single room needs are and see if they have that number of rooms available. Any available rooms would be filled on a first come basis. You would then be billed for the difference in cost between the two types of rooms.

Please note, even with these additional single rooms, there may not be enough for everyone who would like one and you may end up having to share a bedroom with another quilter.

Sorry for the late notice but wanted to keep everyone updated and happy. Thank you for being so understanding as we navigate new waters.

Go 'n piece (hand or machine),

Check out this great guide to the units you can create with your Deb Tucker tools.

Probably one of the questions I get asked most frequently when I'm vending at quilt shows is, "How do you know what tools make which unit", and I've never had a quick, easy answer for that question. Until now that is! I've finally made an official Studio 180 Unit Guide, which clearly lists all the different units you can make using my tools. This is such a useful reference to have, and I just know you're all going to love it!

I just love the scrap bin at Jinny Beyer's! More than one quilt of mine has come out of that bin :) This is Jaybird Quilts' pattern Night Sky done with her Sidekick ruler. You know me... always after the best tool for the job!

Julie B. stopped in to share her striking Night Sky quilt (pattern by Jaybird Quilts) which she made with scraps of Jinny's fabrics. She just might have had to hit our scrap bin again to replenish her supply.

Look what's coming.....  Fun!

Alrighty fans, it's BlockBuster time! Who else can feel the days getting shorter already? Just me? Well, that feeling of summer transitioning into the darkening autumn is what inspired this month's block: Evening Shadows. This is one of the more challenging BlockBuster's that I've put out in a while, so make sure you review your technique sheets before jumping in!

I was in your wonderful class at MAQ. Learning the techniques was a big help to me. Lemoyne star is a long time favorite. I love the ability to play and juggle the background sizes. Thanks for the wonderful learning environment and instruction you provided. I look forward to more classes with you in the future. #MAQ #StitchCentral
