Quilting apps for my iPhone

My stash is in danger of growing and it's all because of my iPhone!  Who has an iPhone and if you do, do you know why?

Well, for all of you who already know and for those that don't, there are these applications (apps) you can download to the iPhone. Some are free, some cost a couple bucks and most don't require any paymet after that.

A fee apps:
Quiltfab which "will help you answer that question for some common backing, binding, and border fabric choices and construction methods."  Just enter the size of the quilt and it will tell you how much fabric needed, etc.

Quiltref is a handy resource for amount of fabric for triangle blocks, measurement conversion and quilt sizes (I can nevere remember the bed size in inches so this is a great tool.)

Quilting contains You Tube videos on a variety of topics.

FabricStash is a tool that holds pics of your stash and information about it as well as helps you organize, for example,  by color so when you are out, your stash is at your fingertips for finding the rigth fabric. How great is that? If you are like me and don't want to buy more than necessary because you cannot stand clutter, well, it's fabritastic!

So, if you have an iPhone and haven't done a search on "quilt" or "Fabric", get to it and see if there are any you like.

Cheers! Beck

I'm technologically challeneged. I'm still using my Motorola RazV3, which is 2 and a half years old.

I want an iPhone! I've just mastered my iPod though, so maybe thats all I'm allowed to learn this year .

Oooh that might be handy, I can see I might actually use up some of my stash, on the other hand another excuse to buy even more. I hadn't thought to check the app store for quilting related apps.
