    There is a "Quilt CAD," which made the Prostitcher program for my HandiQuilter 16. This is not the same program that is on the Avante or Fusion. I have it and really love it.

    Not sure if this is what you mean or not.

    There are a few other CAD [computer assisted drawing] programs out there though.
    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    Oh I thought night quilter meant a quilt caddie ie for putting notions in. Shorthand is useful sometimes or very confusing.

    And I first thought she meant "cad" as in someone who is a 'bad guy,' or annoying, or a let down!
    And I wondered WHY anyone would "use" one of those!!
    But then I also knew cad = computer assisted drawing, so I thought she was talking about EQ type programs.

    I'm from IT and always said Computer Aided Design. I just Googled and learned that it can mean either one - live and learn!

    This is a quilting program that will assist in making and printing custom size pantograph,block and continous line patterns from a printer.The quilt cad has over 200 patterns in it and will hold any pattern and or patterns you make.
