iPhone Fun


I found this appliqué square while gathering my UFOs last month. I’m not sure when I’ll get back to stitching it but in the meantime I had a little fun with a free iPhone app called BlockCam.


Once I started playing with BlockCam, I couldn’t stop!





I wonder how we could use this app to turn photos into quilts???

Hope Your day is filled with creativity!

  1. Love it, I must download that app. I feel my creativity has just screeched onto a new side road, now where is that huge box of lego my sons used to have.

  2. Cool! I like the white daisy looking one…really shows you your value change…will be fun to try. I need a horse quilt for my niece…this might just work!!

  3. This reminds me of the way a shimmer quilt looks when you take a photo of it. The bright and light triangles seems to blur into one another like photos 1, 2 and 6. Very interesting app you’ve found!

  4. You don’t have to figure out how to use BlockCam. The Victoria and Albert Museum has a free online tool called Patchwork Pattern Maker which can transform any image into a quilt pattern. There are a range of choices for number of pieces, and colours as well as squares only or squares and half square triangle pieces. It’s very simple to use and comes with instructions as to how to construct your quilt.

    I have not constructed a quilt using this tool yet, but it is definitely on my list.


  5. Muy fácil usar esta aplicación en un quilt. Tu asignas cada cuadrado de la foto a un cuadrado de 1×1″ (o el tamaño que tu asignes) en tu quilt. Será un quilt para difrutar a cierta distancia (lejos).

  6. That is so cool! Being a modern quilter I am always looking for ways to do things differently, I’m off to download the app. Thanks Lori!

  7. Electric Quilt 7 can turn your pictures into quilts like block cam. If you have it give it a try. Hope this help. Sorry I’m late…..catching up on my emails.

We'd LOVE to hear! Please reply...
