Cool Links & Apps


Master the math involved in quilting! Robert Kaufman Fabrics and Quilters Paradise have joined forces to bring you this updated collection of eight essential quilting calculators. Designed by quilters, the calculators work with both U.S. and metric measurements. With these tools you’ll easily and accurately work out how many rectangular pieces can be cut from a larger piece, or how much fabric is needed for backing, batting and borders, square-in-a-square, set-in and corner triangles.

Best of all, the app is free!

The Thread Organizer section lets you put your personal inventory of Floriani thread into the app and if you see you are getting low on a particular color, simply add it to your built in shopping list! Be honest, have you ever gone to your Floriani dealer and picked up "new" colors of threads only to get home and realize you already had them? We all do this!  This app will help you get everything organized beautifully and tweak your shopping list.

Another amazing feature is the new color matcher.  You can pick any thread made by just about any thread company and find its match in Floriani - the color palette slides from side to side with a finger swipe  and then you can simply pick the shade you like best - check your inventory to see if you have it or add it to your shopping list - WOW! You're going to just love this!
