 PROGRAM

Trunk Show of ABCD Blocks

Kim Schrader Fauth

On Monday, October 15,  Kim Schrader Fauth will show 20 quilts with an explanation of the ABCD technique and a breakdown of each quilt.

Kim has been teaching quilt classes for approximately 10 years but has been quilting for over thirty years. A former math teacher, she is an expert at explaining material so it makes sense. When she came up with the new ABCD Technique, she shared it with her Monday quilting group. They strongly encouraged her to write a book because the technique was so new and different.  Kim’s website is:  http://www.abcdquilting.com.

Kim is a native of Illinois but has lived in Colorado, Idaho and Arizona. She
recently moved to Manitou Springs, Colorado. When she isn’t teaching quilting,
she tutors children in mathematics and travels as much as possible.

WORKSHOP

Making ABCD Blocks and a Quilt

ABCD Quilt

On Tuesday, October 16, students will learn to make the 32 blocks using Kim’s ABCD technique.  This takes about 3 hours – yes, you read that right – 3 hours.  The blocks are made in three steps by sewing on the diagonal and the sides in a specific order. No paper piecing, special rulers or templates are needed.  Students will use these blocks to create a design in class and begin constructing the finished product.  They are simple to make, fun to create with, and play well with other blocks you already know how to make like half square triangles and four patch.

Students will come to class with 5″ squares precut according to the Supply List.
The first three hours will be spent sewing the 32 blocks.  During lunch there will be a mini trunk show describing how to design using the blocks.  The time after lunch is spent squaring the blocks and designing.
