Quilt design software for free!

In my normal readings of all things quilt related I come across a freebie!  At first glance I was a bit intimidated.  Software sometimes boggles my mind, but all software has an undo button.  Undo buttons magically take you back one move….two moves….as many times as you want to go back to what satisfies.

I came across this tidbit in this youtube video called “sew up your stash, by Karen Brown” of Just Get it Done Quilts.  For those of you who have tremendous stashes, she gives very good advice.  I was using this advice before the youtube video as I figured it out along the way.  My motto….When there is a will, there is a way.  Click here for Karen’s youtube video.

In the very last part of the video she kindly gives info for a beta software run of a quilt design program.

I played with this and was astounded in just 10 minutes I came up with this:


Reminds me of bats and could easily be done in halloween colors.  With a click of the mouse I changed the drunkards path blocks the opposite direction and then flip flopped the colors.  Butterflies is what I was seeing.  They also have free patterns to start with a template, and then you can audition a quilt in different colors, or you can rotate a block and audition the difference before one piece of fabric is cut or sewn.

Interested in learning more?  Click here or type in prequilt.com in your browser’s address bar.  This software is user friendly all you have to do is watch some of the tutorials they give by clicking the learn button.  Amazing!  Easy!  Fun! Free!  Couldn’t be better!

You can subscribe to their service, and a saving feature is being designed currently to save your electronic works of art to retain and reuse again and again.  Neat stuff all free.

I would like to take the time to thank Barbara for passing the links to me, and therefore passing it on to all you quilters out there.  She is a long time M* forum member and I enjoy what she shares, shows, or has to say.  Grammababs you are awesome, and  I am paying this freebie forward to other quilters.  Thank you!

  1. I know I’m late, but it’s such a coincidence (or God thing) that I just watched this video by Karen Brown tonight, unrelated to your website. Thanks for the recommend.
