Quilters Toolbox Website Application
We would like to introduce you to a new way to choose and buy fabric. Thousands of Bolts, an online retailer, has launched a cool new application on their website called “Quilter’s Toolbox”. To get started click here, click on Quilter’s Toolbox Part 1, and listen to the tutorial. Next, create a free account and login into the site, choose the fabrics you like (up to 300 skus but really there is no limit), add them to your wishlist, and drop them onto quilt blocks to see how they work together. You can also specify quilt size, number of skus to drop in, tuck, borders, sashing, etc. The program changes interactively as you work displaying the results as you go. Then you can save the file and it will provide the fabric requirements needed for the project made. If a fabric is sold out or there isn’t enough in stock, you will be prompted with a “color matcher” option of other fabrics that look similar to swap out. Start designing your quilt today!
