Welcome to my website!


My name is Kathie Beltz, and I am a professional quilter, teacher, quilt judge, and designer.  I am also a Certified Instructor for Studio 180 Design, Deb Tucker’s tool and technique company.  My company, Kathie Beltz Quilt Designs, features companion quilt patterns for Studio 180 Design tools.  Feel free to check out my classes, lectures, retreats, and scheduling calendar by clicking on the tabs above.

Announcing Virtual Lectures and Classes!

Yes, I’m doing the “pivot,” and taking my lectures and most of my classes online.  The three lectures available are:

   – Easy Color for Quilters

– Secrets from the Judge’s Chambers

– Studio 180 Design Lecture and Trunk Show


Most of the workshops on my “Classes” page are available to guilds online.  Demos are available, too.

I also have a few virtual classes for individuals on my “Shop” page.



Click on the “Classes” tab or “Shop” tab for more information.


I’d love to come and visit you virtually!




My website will be updated regularly, so please come back and visit often!

Every now and then I have to get real with all of you. Here's the thing. We designers KNOW some of you copy and share our patterns. We don't always know who is doing it, but believe me, when we do stumble upon it happening, we are not terribly forgiving. It's wrong. It's illegal. It steals from us. And we are not ok with it. Don't do it. And if your friends are doing it, don't approve it. If your quilt shop is doing it (rare, but it happens), know that they know better and there is no excuse. Thank you. ...
