Begins March, 2021
Your "tour guide" on this star-studded journey will be our Studio 180 leader extraordinaire, Leianne. Leianne started this wonderful thing we call our quilting hobby when she moved to Ontario in 2001. In addition to working at Quilters Cupboard, she is excited to share her knowledge through classes, quilt shows, workshops and trunk shows for Quilt Guilds
Leianne’s discovery of the accuracy of the Studio 180 Design rulers and love of Lemoyne Star quilts are a perfect fit for sharing with students. Some might call her “star obsessed”, and they don’t mean movie stars! Leianne continues to learn new things about Studio 180 and is passionate about sharing those learnings with others.
As part of this Block of the Month program, Leianne will share a detailed instructional video each month to help you master the skills required to complete each block. She will include other tips as well that will be geared towards helping you to "Increase your Success and Decrease your Stress!"
If you are going to embark on a star-studded journey, there can be no better tour guide!

Leianne will share lots of added tips to help you “Tuckerize” this project. These tips will not only help you complete this project with accurate piecing and less stress, but they will help you on all future projects as well! So while the Studio 180 tools are not required to participate in this Block of the Month and make this quilt, by the end of this program, Leianne might just have you convinced that oversizing your blocks and trimming them down is the way to go for perfect piecing!
s and Flying Geese, there are no additional tools required. Leianne will however be sharing her thoughts on helpful notions along the way.
