A #1 Lifestyle App and the highest rated and best selling Quilting App Available.
Quiltography is a unique, time and money saving mobile digital quilt design tool for the modern quilter. Reduce the need to buy expensive quilt patterns, limit fabric wastage and make it quick and easy to search and audition fabrics to help design your next quilt.
** New Feature for v1.3: Yardage Calculator **
Need a helping hand working out an estimate for the fabric requirements for your newly designed quilt? Quiltography now does all the hard work for you. Just one button press away and you can have a full breakdown of the number blocks required as well as the quilt dimensions and estimated yardage for each fabric within the entire quilt.
** Your Stash, Your Way **
Take your fabric everywhere you go. Quiltography saves you money as there is no need to buy too much fabric or accidentally purchase duplicate fabrics. Record how much you have, where you got it from, when you purchased it and even how much it cost.
Quiltography automatically scans your fabric and picks up to 5 of the top colours to help categorise your fabrics, this saves you time and frees you up to do what you do best, quilt.
You can even import images of fabric you saved from the internet so you can audition fabrics before you even purchase them.
** Templates Galore **
Choose from over 180 hand crafted traditional block templates. Quiltography contains more block designs than any other mobile app. Each block is named to help beginners find tutorials online to bridge the gap between Quiltography and the vast quantities of quilting tutorials online.
Each block can be customised with any fabric imported into Quiltography. This helps users understand how the blocks come together and establish if fabrics will work together on the most basic level.
** Design Blocks **
Feeling adventurous? Create your own block templates from scratch. Pick a shape to add it to the grid, it animates onscreen and positions itself ready to be resized, rotated and flipped into place.
Colour your shapes to add definition to your designs. Use the template block designer to create something unique or to replicate a block you love.
** Audition Fabrics **
Auditioning virtual fabrics in Quiltography saves you from cutting into expensive fabric to find out they just don’t work, not to mention the feeling of knowing that the fabric in your local shop will look perfect in your next quilt before you even get to the checkout.
** Create Quilts **
Quiltography is so easy to use, you can create and edit quilts in seconds. Search blocks you have previously created by the colour of the fabrics they contain or instantly create something new.
Quiltography allows you to add a border around your quilt comprised of blocks, this gives the flexibility of designing something classic and simple or something much more fun and exciting.
Adjust the sashing width, add cornerstones, flip and rotate blocks. The quilt design tool also allows you to link matching blocks, this saves you time and lets you change multiple blocks instantly.
** Instant Photo Quilts **
Ever wanted to turn photos into quilts, this feature is for you. Simply import a photo of your choosing, and, in the blink of an eye, Quiltography will turn your image into a unique pixellated quilt design.
If the masses of squares are a little too overwhelming, not a problem, the photoQuilt feature offers an exclusive PDF pattern exporting tool. At the tap of a button, your photoQuilt will be turned into an easy to follow pattern that can be shared with friends or family.

What's New in Version 1.46
Fixes an issue with some users being able to load images from their iPad camera.
Very helpful app, loads of fun for planning
I really love using Quiltography. I can spend hours playing with designs using fabric I already own or want to purchase. There are two problems I have, both probably due to my being a relative quilting newbie.
1. The fabric calculator is great, but for complex cuts it doesn't give you block measurements. I find I need to work that out myself based on my grid and the block size.
2. Because you cannot overlap shapes in the blocks, I find I have to use a more complicated design than I will really use in the end. Again, there is probably something obvious I'm missing. Oh, and it would be nice to have a cheat sheet for standard quilt size dimensions.
A quilting must have!
This app is very helpful to beginners and avid quilters alike, nice to store all fabrics in my stash and sort them. Could you please add three features? 1. The ability to sort template blocks by number of cuts, 2. Add a search function by name to locate the desired template block faster? and 3. By default have the single, fill block always sort to the upper left for ease.
Great Quilt design program
Yes I could spend a gazillion dollars on a certain other quilt design program but it is a little too much design and not enough quilting. This app allows you too play with basic shapes and add your own fabric. Bring it to the quilt store and "try"out different fabrics for you quilt. Less time learning software and more time quilting.
