Flannel Days - computer generated quilts

After messing with this for way longer than it should have taken, I finally got the Flannel Days cover to download - wahoo! Sometimes I'm so frustrated by all the technology, but it's also a lifesaver at times. Case in point - this quilt doesn't actually exist yet. I haven't received any of the fabrics from the Flannel Days collection, but the pattern is due NOW. What to do? Use fabric images scanned into the computer to make a digital quilt. It's not quite the same, but it definitely works in a pinch.

I'm intrigued by all the gadgets and whatnots that my kids can't live without and even purchased an iPad a few months ago. I really like having my life on the calendar and surfing for recipes, etc. but I don't really feel I'm utilizing it to it's capacity. What are some of your favorite apps? What do I need to learn to do on my iPad? Any suggestions out there, ladies?


  1. If you are a "reader", you might want to download the free Kindle app and the free Nook app. The blog Books on the Knob features free e-books available in different e-book formats. There is also a app for blogging from the Ipad, but I can't remember the name. There is also a free App with the quilts from the Red and White quilt show. It's listed as Infinite Variety. Have fun!

  2. Flannel Days looks so warm and cozy. I don't have an iPad but it sure is tempting ;-)

  3. This Flannel Days quilt looks great. I'll have to put it on my bucket list. As to an iPad, I don't have one - have enough trouble with the computer and don't want to aggravate myself with anything else. (I'm too old for that). I'll just keep quilting away!

  4. I think you did a great job with the cover, could have fooled me, thought it was a real quilt.

  5. My favorite App on the phone is the one that will translate what ever I say into the language of the country I am in! Wow!

  6. Nice looking quilt!

  7. My favorite apps:

    Angry birds
    HBO Go
    Weight watchers
    Betty Crocker cookbook
    And several quilting apps

    Most of the apps are free. I use my iPad mostly to read my email,surf the web and play games. I usually surf the net during commercials. I didn't think I needed one but DH bought it for me. Now I don't know how I lived without it
