Welcome to my website!


My name is Kathie Beltz, and I am a professional quilter, teacher, and quilt judge.  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.

Please remember the Vermont Quilt Festival on Giving Tuesday.

Vermont Quilt FestivalFor decades the Vermont Quilt Festival has been an annual event for friends from across the country to gather and reconnect. We hear countless stories of friends regrouping at the end of the day in their hotel lobbies. Catching one another up on the classes they took, what bought from the vendors, and what contest quilts they've fallen in love with. VQF is looking forward to our virtual event in 2021 so that we may once again join together in person in 2022. But we need your help.

The Vermont Quilt Festival has faced significant financial challenges in light of canceling our 2020 show. Our volunteer board and small staff is working hard to bring a quality virtual show to you in 2021 but our real goal is joining together in person in 2022. With your support on #GivingTuesday, we will be that much closer to our 2022 goal and being able to come together as friends to pick up where we left off.

Tag your VQF besties and let them know you're thinking of them!
