    Quilter's App - questions for those who already own this app

    I am thinking about purchasing this app but I have question(s):

    1. Once you designed your quilt, will the app give you
    - the fabric requirements
    - cutting instruction
    - backing & binding requirements
    2. Will the app allow you to save quilt & instructions to a pub format?
    3. Can you print (via air print) directly from the app?

    Basically, I'm look'n for an app that functions like EQ but BETTER!!!!!! and from my iPad lolol

    I would love to find a quilting app that worked like EQ for a tablet of any sort. But the good news is there is supposed to be a new Tablet coming out that will run more like a computer/laptop than a phone. You have to be able to run a certain type of windows like program to get EQ to work from what I understand. my hubby was talking about getting me a tablet of some sort to use for quilting so I wouldn't have to keep kicking him off the computer to get to the pattern that I am working on or the block.
    when life gets you down go and talk with a little kid. They will help you work out even the worst problems with their simple logic.

    This is all very interesting. I asked Santa for an IPad - would be great if it could have a Quilter's App.

    There's an app for Droid users called Stitcher's Helper. It's got a bunch of calculators and such. You can even take photos and put those in your projects.

    I have it and love it!!! Good luck!

    about quilter's app

    I posted something a week or two ago about an app I'd seen in a magazine which sounded a lot like EQ but just not as extensive. One version was under $15 and the other under $8. If I can find that post I'll re-post it.

    It was easier than I expected to find the post; here's the link to the information:
    I came across this link for a really cool app advertised in "American Patchwork & Quilting" (Aug. 2011) for your iPad and iPhone. I do have an iTouch but don't think my aging eyes want to use this on such a small screen. However, it may be soooo much fun for so many of you out there. It looks like the price is just under $15. I only viewed one of the videos but found it amazing to see what it can do! Have fun looking

    That's the app I'm inquiring about... I was hoping to get answers to my questions from someone who already owns the app; the website does not address them, so I'm left to assume that it doesn't do those things....

    I'll have to check out the app. Thanks for the link, I look for quilting apps for my IPad ocassionally but have not seen this one. BTW, I love my IPad, if you are thinking about getting a tablet check them out. Besides my sewing machines, it is the one thing I have that I use everyday for something.

    Robert Kaufman has a free app that has all kinds of measurement aids and calculators such as piece count, binding, border yardage. Google robert kaufman app and you'll find the site.

    Ok, I dusted the cob webs off my VISA gift card that I got LAST Christmas and bought the Quilter's App. I don't recommend this app AT ALL. Sure if you like to play with design layouts (especially while you're on the go), it's fun. You can test your fabrics in the blocks or test plain color options. Design layouts are pretty basic/limited. You can email the picture of your design. HOWEVER, that's all you can really do. It does NOT give you any fabric requirements or cutting suggestions.

    Couple this app w/BlockFab-HD (which is free & I mostly like it better) and you can figure out yardage needed though *smiles*

    I am writing the developers of this app to see if they can improve it to be more like EQ and/or to do what it does plus what BlockFab... I rather spend more on one app the fits all my needs than have'n to bounce between apps to get a job done
