    Free Quilting Calculator App for your "smart" devices!

    I just found a great app for your Android devices called "QuiltCalc" on Amazon. It's by Robert Kaufman. It has several uses, from figuring how much fabric is needed, to how many pieces can be cut from a specific piece of fabric. It helps with setting triangles to bindings. It also has other links to Kaufman blogs or stores that carry his fabric. Look in the app store under "utilities" to find it. I had to scroll down the list quite a ways to get to it. Great app to have with you when you're at the LQS!

    There is the same app for the I phone as well. And a pretty nifty app it is.

    I looked in the App Store on my IPhone - Utilities - free apps and could not find it. Am I doing something wrong?

    It works in the IPad too. It makes things so much easier.
    There are several others but I like this one the best.

    Another one i downloaded was Sherman Paint chips, free. I use it for the colors when picking fabrics.

    Wow, just went to the app store to get it for my iPod and found it right away along with a whole bunch of other quilting apps. Never knew they were out there! Thank you.

    Sorry, I don't know about your Iphone, but maybe the person (Rainagade) who found it for her Ipad can help you out??? Good luck!

    I have this on my first iPhone, but have not put it on my new iPhone. I just put it on my Kindel Fire. It does come in handy when shopping. Need to put it on my new iPhone or start taking the Kendel with me. Too many electronics for an old lady to get use to.

    You just go to the App Store on your iPhone. Go to search and type in quiltcalc and it will come up. Then say download and it will download. You have to have a password. The app was free.

    Don't go to utilities. Just app store and search by typing in what you want.

    There's also yardsellr for quilting. Looks like a pretty good app. If you go to the search area in your apps store, on your devices and type in quilt or quilting it will bring up even more apps for your smart phones etc.
