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.

You NEED this app
I know what you're thinking, high price tag for an app... Only you're wrong. Think about how much money you spend on one pattern or one quilting magazine. Now think about how much money you would spend on an unlimited supply of patterns or the ability to sketch out and measure new blocks and new quilts in mere minutes. Add being able to actually see your fabrics configured in your blocks BEFORE you measure or buy anything, and that saves a ton of money right there. Then the app goes even further by summarizing how many of each block you need to make and by estimating the amount of each fabric your quilt is going to need. Got a Block of the Month Club? Great, bring your iPad along and you can enter your new custom block and start trying on fabrics right away. If you love fabrics and you love to play with combinations and configurations, you will be living (or dreaming) on this app all day long.
I might just be in love!!!
So glad I bought this app! Nearly everything I've tried to do has been easy and intuitive! I have loaded fabrics, designed blocks, and designed quilts. I LOVE that I can design a quilt, and know what it will look like, before I ever cut my fabric. I'm making a quilt for my son, and thought I needed to increase the number of different fabrics. Once I put it into Quiltography, I was able to see that it actually looked better with fewer fabrics. So glad to know that before I started, rather than being disappointed with a completed quilt! That right there was more than enough to offset the price of the app!
Need an improvement
Hi guys! So far, love, love, love the app!! However, started designing an off-center log cabin block and discovered the grid doesn't expand enough to accommodate the number of logs needed. Currently, since there is no option to change the grid piece dimensions, I have doubled up the grid sections for the bigger logs. As a result, I run out of grid space to create a 12 log wide block. Any suggestions, work-arounds, etc? Thank you. Ps. A curvy (off-center) log cabin template block would be nice to include in the template library😀
