Quiltography for the iPad

One of the many great things about Thailand is that almost any place you go, hotel or restaurant, there is free wifi.... Why can't England do this!?


Anyway, as it's far too hot to sit in the sun, I've been surfing, and on one of my regular visits to Lily's Quilts I found out that Quiltography is one year old, and is offering their app for an iPad at the bargain price of £4.99! So of course, with time on my hands to play, I just had to download it.... and it is fantastic!

Not only are there lots of sample blocks for you to design with, place where you want, rotate, flip and so on, but the best bit is that you can upload images of fabrics from your stash to add to your fabric library to use when designing your quilts. What a great way of keeping a record of those spending sprees!

It really couldn't be easier, I went to Doughty's, of course, and had a play with the new Town & Country range from Lewis & Irene and came up with this zig zag quilt...

Sadly the one thing it doesn't do is measurements, how much to cut and where... I suppose we do need to do some of the hard work!
