Galaxy – 10/14/17

Galaxy – a Tucker Tool project with Martha

Saturday, 10/14/17 from 10am-3pm



Tucker Tools set you up for success in every project by making blocks a bit over sized then squaring up. Martha is very enthusiastic about all the Tucker Tools and would love to have you join her in this class to make the project “Galaxy”.

Galaxy is a beautiful alternating block design using two types of blocks, one with a red star and one with a blue star. Because of the color placement and the different angles in the triangles, the interesting interlocking circles appear and the second star block disappears into the circles. It’s a fun optical illusion, easy to make and even easier to admire.

We think it would be awesome in Christmas colors too!
