It’s Not Just for Quilting Apps!
Of all the tools available to quilters your phone may be one of the most useful. Keep your cell phone close by while sewing and shopping. You’ll soon learn how helpful it can be.
For example, take photos of block and quilt layouts before you start sewing so you don’t forget what goes where.
If you can’t decide on a layout, or are unsure of which fabrics or colors to choose, lay out the options and take photos. Very often seeing the choices on a small screen will solidify your thinking and show you what works best.
Your phone is also helpful for collecting and saving ideas, whether they be color palettes, possible quilt designs or quilts you love and want to study further.
If you’ve found a trick that helps something go together more easily, document the steps with photos so you don’t forget. And, always photograph finished quilts for your records.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
