Technique Sheet - Pickets & Quickets


 Use with Wing Clipper 1 Tool.

This fundamental unit has evolved over the years from two individual templates to rectangles and folded squares and now to my version that Deb Tucker likes to call "Picket Fences" and "Quickets".  For "Pickets" you will use the same folded corner technique but start with slightly oversized squares and rectangles so that your oversized unit can be trimmed to perfection with her Wing Clipper tool.  For "Quickets" you will use a piecing process similar to her favourite Fast Flying Geese method that will result in slight oversized units that will also be trimmed to perfection with Deb Tucker's Wing Clipper tool.  So give her techniques a try and see what you think!  I'm sure you'll be much happier with the end result and you'll probably start looking for patterns that incorporate this shape.
