Kathie Beltz, from Greenfield, NH, is a Studio 180 Design Certified Instructor. In her lecture and trunk show, Kathie will present the tools and techniques from Deb Tucker’s design company.  With 22 different tools, over 100 patterns, and 2 dozen technique sheets, the design possibilities are endless.  Each tool is based on a fundamental quilt block unit, and when you mix and match the blocks, creativity flows!  There won’t be time to talk about all the tools and technique sheets, but Kathie will highlight her favorites, and show you lots of patterns and designs that can be made with the tools. Tools, patterns, and technique sheets are available, with lots of quilt samples.

GyleenX. Fitzgerald is absolutely passionate about quilting! Color enlivens all her work, and she is perhaps best known for her sense of color along with her technical design ability. She lectures on color and various techniques to make the complex so simple. All lectures are supported by a trunk show of quilts. Lecture: It's a Polygon Affair - Step outside the "square" to evaluate the mechanics of Pyramid, Diamond, Kite and Hexagon quilts. It starts with the simplicity and elegance of the one patch and continues with a play of combined mix and match. The look can be contemporary or modern with just the right twist. Features quilts from the Polygon Affair Series I & II.
