Speedy Quilt Layout | Using Your Phone!

We’re in the final week of the Harvest Star quilt along so I shared with the participants a quick and easy way to determine your next quilt layout. I thought it was worth sharing it on here too!

This only works if your quilt has 9 or less blocks – I have yet to find a photo collage app that allows for more than 9 photos, so if you know of one, please let me know in the comments below!

The How To:

Take a square picture of all of your quilt blocks. I did this with my phone. Don’t worry too much about them being perfect, we’re just looking for the ability to get a visual idea of what our quilt will look like once it is all assembled.

Download the free Layout app by Instagram. There are quite a few photo collage apps out there but I’ve found this one the most user friendly one out there. And it is free! I like free.

Once in the app, select all of the photos you took of your blocks. You’re limited to 9 photos, so if you have a quilt with 12 blocks, I recommend doing the top 6, and then the bottom 6. It will still give you a good idea of final quilt layout.

Drag your photos around in the app until you’re satisfied with the final quilt layout, then save your photo and get sewing!

  1. Hello! This is a great idea! How did you ever think of that?
    I have used PicCollage for photos. You can get up to 20 pics in the layout. I think it’s the new and improved Layout App.
    Anyway, hope that helps.
    Have a great day and thanks for your information!

    1. Thanks for sharing about PicCollage! I thought about this when I didn’t feel like doing the workout physically moving the blocks required! Ha!
