The other day I was talking with my mom about how there should be a quilting app. A quick little calculator for all those little measurements I can't seem to figure out. One simple search later, I found one!
I really love the Kona Cotton Solids by Robert Kaufman. There is every color under the sun. Well, Robert Kaufman teamed up with Quilter's Paradise to make this free(!) app for iPhones.
This is the first page of the app. I don't know if I'll use all the different calculators, but I have used the backing & binding calculator a couple of times now.
The quilt I'm working on is going to be a 68 inch square quilt. So here is how I used the app to figure out my backing. I put in a 12 inch overage for if I want to get it machine quilted (something I'm still not sure about).
How cool is that? I'll need 7 and 3/4 yardage for my backing.
Binding! This seems like the most confusing thing to calculate. I used the same width and length as above.
Oh, I'm so happy that I found this app before I needed to calculate my binding! I seriously recommend this app to anyone that has an iPhone, iPod Touch, or an iPad and quilts or knows a quilter. You can find out more info here.
