Quiltler 2 is by far the best i've come across

Sites and technology move so fast, some of these apps are home now, and there are new ones coming out. I use FickleFabrics.com, since it's cross device which is really nice. You should add it to the list above!

too bad no one checked to see that more than half these are no longer in existence

I was only able to locate Quilting Tutorials by MSQC and QuiltingCalc apps. BlockFab was only an app from Joann Fabrics. Are these only available in UK or AUS?

This is such a cool article! I wish app creators would make these more Android friendly but I'm excited to try some of these out. Thanks so much!
