What is the Quilt Planner?
The Quilt Planner is an online program where you can customize quilt patterns with any fabric to see the look of the finished quilt before buying supplies.
Quilt planning begins by selecting a pattern from our library to customize. From there, you enter the Quilt Planner where the simple point-and-click interface allows you to easily click on a piece of fabric then watch as it loads into the correct space in your quilt! If you don’t love the way it looks, click on another fabric until you find the perfect one. When finished, reference the yardage chart to see how much of each fabric you'll want to buy or cut to make your quilt!
No downloading necessary
On the technical side, the planner itself is a web application. This means there is no downloading necessary with our Quilt Planning app. The Quilt Planner is accessed using a web browser such as Google Chrome. If you can access the internet, you can use the Quilt Planner at Quiltster.com.

What the Quilt Planner is not
The Quilt Planner is not a quilt pattern design program. If you are looking for a place to design your own pattern linework from scratch, Quiltster does not fit that need. All the patterns available in the Quilt Planner are completed designs ready to be customized with fabric.
The Quilt Planner is not a place where patterns may be uploaded by members. All the patterns available in the Quilt Planner go through a strict approval process with the designer before being published to our platform. For this reason, patterns are added to Quiltster.com by Quiltster staff members only.
