    Just go to the app store and do a search for quilt apps. I found several. The one I use the most is from Robert Kaufman. It's a quilt calculator type app. There's also one I downloaded that's like the quilt calculator but I haven't yet taken the time to learn how to use it.

    Whatever apps work for the iPhone work for the iPad.

    Thanks for the tips, everyone. I downloaded QuiltCalc, Quilt Shops for iPad, BlockFab-HD, Quilt Tutorials from Missouri Star and QuiltFab.

    I also have QuiltFab where I can put in the size of the quilt I want, it will figure fabric with shrinkage and how much I need for backing, binding, mitered borders, middle border, outside border, sashing strips (with stripes horizontal or vertical, if I want), setting triangles, side triangles, and corner triangles. QuiltRef and Keepsake Quilting too. Thanks for the info on QuiltCalc and Missouri Star - they are now on my iPhone!!!

    I keep my pdf patterns in iBooks. It is easy to read them or print them (just got a wireless printer with AirPrint and it's cool) or send to email to save on a stick from my computer. Or sync to iTunes or iCloud and never worry about losing your patterns. The iPad is a wonderful toy.

So easy to have all the patterns in full color with me when fabric shopping. I love my Kindle Fire for quilting. Of course it's great for reading books too.
    I have looked for Send to Kindle app on my Kindle Fire and cannot find it. Any suggestions? Thanks. This would be great.

    I don't have an ipad. I've got the Google Nexus tablet - I'm going to check out what's available for it now! You guys have me curious!

    I have several: The Victoria and Albert museum has V&A quilts which is a great look at very old quilts
    Quilt Ref has little that I can figure out and Block fab is a fun thing to play with as you get to see what colours would look good with all kinds of patterns.

    Oh wow! I just downloaded this app and it's awesome! I love my iPad, too. I call it my iBaby since we are empty nesters and becoming a grandma is in the far future. Thank you for the app tip.
