Deb has been an avid quiltmaker since 1981 and describes herself as a “machine piecing efficiency expert.” She has developed numerous streamlined construction techniques and tools to ensure high-quality success for all levels of quilters. Her patented tools – Rapid Fire Hunter’s Star and Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star – as well as her fundamental line of rulers (Tucker Trimmer, Wing Clipper, Square Squared, V Block Trimmer, Corner Beam Ruler, and others) are sold nationally and internationally. As a designer, Deb has developed many patterns, books, online video tutorials, and additional products to guide quilters in their machine piecing processes. In 2008, not only did Deb launch her company, Studio 180 Design, she was also nominated for Teacher of the Year by Professional Quilter Magazine. Her business now has five full-time employees and 80+ Certified Instructors (trained individuals who are available to teach and lecture all across this country and abroad). When not traveling, Deb, her husband Jeff, and their crew of “cat helpers” live in beautiful central North Carolina. Learn more at deb-tuckers-studio-180-design.myshopify.com.
