I have been looking for an option to allow quilters to be able to easily make digital quilt mockups of Quilting Jetgirl patterns. There are several great apps that are available, but most of the apps I have found require the designer to pay monthly fees in order to host their patterns on the site. And honestly, at this time, my pattern sales do not currently support having those kind of recurring fees. But earlier this week, I discovered the Recolor app. The Recolor app can be used for free, but like most free apps, that means occasional video ads need to be played to “unlock” the ability to get to a feature or function.
To explain it all, I put together a video tutorial showing how to navigate and use the app using the coloring page for the Planview Quilt. Note that I have tested this out using my iPad and cannot vouch for the app on other devices.
One final thing that I want to be sure to mention about the Recolor app; when the file is saved, the app adds a Recolor watermark to the lower right hand corner of the image.
In order to help Quilting Jetgirl customers, I have created a Coloring Sheet page on my website. It is my hope that by providing these additional tools, you will feel more empowered in your fabric selections and ready to piece your next Quilting Jetgirl pattern!
*Note: this is an app for mobile devices. If you want to color in coloring sheets on a laptop or desktop computer, I recommend simple programs like Paint or Photoshop and using the paint bucket icon to fill in areas with the colors you desire!
