QuiltRef is a free mobile quilt reference app that is not just for quilters, but for quilt fans too. This utility for the Apple iPhone and iPod touch provides useful information whether you are in a quilt shop buying fabric, at a quilt show admiring others' handiwork, or hunting antique quilts at auctions and yard sales.

For the quilter, the Setting Triangle feature will compute the sizes of setting triangles, those shapes needed to fill in the "holes" left around the edges of a quilt when setting quilt blocks on point, at a 45 degree angle. The Conversion feature will convert measurements between inches, yards, and centimeters. It also includes a table of common fractional yard measurements and the equivalent number of inches.

A feature for both quilters making quilts and quilt fans acquiring them is the Quilt Size table of common bed and quilt sizes that helps you select a quilt that will give you the look you want on your bed. The Quilting Stitches feature offers a visual reference so you can compare the full-scale photo of sample stitches to actual quilt stitches on a quilt you are examining and quickly estimate the number of stitches per inch, which is one of the factors in evaluating a quilt.

Bed sizes and setting triangles

No useful info beyond that. Too simple to take up limited space

Useful tool for fabric shopping

Quilt Ref offers several useful things for quilters. First, it includes a chart listing standard mattress and comforter/bedspread sizes. Second, it offers a conversion chart for converting from inches to yards to centimeters. Third, is a calculator that gives you the size of triangle you need to use if you are setting blocks on point. There is also a stitch length indicator. This is a great addition to the other free quilting app, QuiltFab.

Basic and simple

Very simple and basic but is a handy tool to have.
