Quilting Calculator for My New Smartphone – The Quilters Little Helper

After 5 days of owning my new Samsung Galaxy Note II I still LOVE it!  I needed a big screen and I got it with this phone!  Plus the battery life is amazing.  If you want to know more about this phone you can check it out here.

What I really wanted to share was the quilting calculator app I found for my phone.  I am not fond of math so typically I’m pulling up regular calculators on my phone or laptop and struggling with figuring out how much fabric I need for my projects.  Today I found a FREE app developed by Robert Kaufman fabrics, The Quilters Little Helper.  Most reviews are very good and from playing around with it on my phone the app looks great and works great for me.

I came across this wonderful idea and tutorial that combines two things I love, fabric and crochet!  I’m going to consider quilting some fabric squares and using this crochet technique to joint them.  I’ll post a picture of how that turns out.
