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.

Ratings and Reviews
Great app, but with significant limitations
I love designing quilts with this app. With the ability to upload my own fabric, I can see accurately what the finished quilt would look like, And the yardage calculator is a godsend. However, the limitations are too significant to merit 5 stars.
1. The blocks can only be square. While it wouldn't be a problem with many traditional quilts, it severely limits the types of quilts that can be designed. There are many quilt designs with rectangular, triangle, or even hexagon blocks. Those are not an option with this app.
2. The border options are basically zero. You can only have one 5" border. This is pretty strange, given that there are almost endless ways to design borders on a quilt, including multiple borders, pieced borders, etc.
3. Same with sashing. You can have cornerstones, but that's about it. I wanted to design a quilt with Ohio stars as part of the cornerstone and sashing, but it's not possible with this app. Also, it's impossible to tell how wide the sashing is when adjusting with the sliding bar. You have to exit the screen and click another button to see any dimensions. Very frustrating.
I do love this app. If it were making only very traditional quilts with Just one 5-inch borders, I wouldn't have any complaints. But I find the above limitations puzzling, and frustrating.
Developer Response ,
Really happy to hear you are enjoying designing quilts with Quiltography.
With regards to the border, you can indeed have a pieced border, just set any of your blocks to the border, many users create technically impressive borders as well as the effect of multiple borders this way.
The size of the border is not fixed to 5” but proportional to the rest of the quilt. With the cornerstones; you can also set any block to them just as easily as you add blocks to the rest of the quilt.
Hope this helps. Chris.
In love with this app.
I had been trying for a long time to figure out how to keep track of my stash without having to cut off the corners and staple them into notebooks. When I was searching the App Store for what seemed like the hundredth time I came across this one. As I read the description and reviews my heart jumped for joy. When I saw the price my heart sank. I decided I wasn't ready to pay that. After several months and lots of trying to find "that fabric i bought for that one project" 5 years ago, I finally decided it was worth it to buy the app.
I love being able to take pictures of my fabric, make notes as to how much I bought, what project it is for and most importantly where I put it. I also like being able to use the block templates or create my own with the pictures of my fabrics. I also like being able to create a quilt with the blocks and fabrics I have.
I have showed this app to several quilting friends and they really like it too. However they do not have iPads and most likely are not going to get one just for this app. I think it would be beneficial to them and the developers of this app to make it for the google store as well.
I am in love with this app. ❤️
Doesn’t work too well
Good idea but execution is lacking. Just created a block, all pieces are filled in, but it won’t save. Frustrating. It says the block isn’t finished. You can’t adjust the size of your fabrics to show more of the design in a piece. You can’t overlap pieces when creating a block so curves are really hard to do (example the Cathedral Window design). Adding things like copy and paste when creating blocks would be good. Can’t seem to edit a block once you create it. Would be helpful when you’re designing a block that when you touch a spot on the block if the selection wheel would go around to the fabric. Idea : Save your fabric swatches you plan to use in a particular quilt by that quilt name so you can pull them up all together; this would help you avoid having to search for a specific fabric.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
