Here's how Quilt Design Wizard works:

Design your Quilt on the Computer Screen.

Quilt Design Wizard™ guides you step-by-step using an easy point-and-click method. You'll be an instant designer with the Wizard's help.

Start by selecting:

  • a layout style
  • mattress size
  • block size
  • add borders
  • Select from 200 quilt blocks colored with beautiful fabric and ready to set into your layout.
  • Blocks are color-coordinated in color families to help you choose blocks that work well together.

Print the Patterns and Yardage Estimates. Color the borders and you're ready to print! Quilt Design Wizard™ prints fabric yardage estimates, rotary cutting charts, and sewing instructions for each block.

If you prefer templates or foundation piecing patterns, Quilt Design Wizard™ prints those too! You'll save hours because Quilt Design Wizard™ does all the computing, calculating, and scaling. You just click print!

 
Sew or Learn Sewing and Quilting Basics. The designing is done. The patterns and yardage estimates are printed. You're ready to sew! Quilt Design Wizard™ is loaded with every bit of information you'll need. From buying supplies and fabrics, to assembly and quilting, to finishing and storing your quilt – Quilt Design Wizard™ has it all.

200 Blocks Whether you prefer the traditional charm of the Log Cabin block or the whimsical fun of a pictorial Tractor block, you're sure to find something to suit your taste.

 

3000 Fabrics Varied and vibrant fabrics invite you to play with color. Experiment with hundreds of color combinations on screen before you ever cut the fabric.

Versatile layouts and borders From simple wall quilts to large bed quilts, try out your ideas. Create hundreds of different combinations of horizontal and on-point layouts. Add as many borders as you like. Perfect for beginners or seasoned quilters.

Reviews

"Quilt Design Wizard is an excellent program. It makes you an instant quilt designer and it offers the perfect solution for playing with fabric colors and textures. Click on a button to see how shades of purple and green look together, or to visualize how changing a component's color value affects the layout. You know what that means, don't you? Less fabric waste. If you want a more powerful program go for Electric Quilt, a generic drawing program like Adobe Illustrator, or another quilt design software package. If you want something easy to learn and use, at an excellent price, you can't beat Quilt Design Wizard." Read the full review. - Janet Wickell, Quilting Guide for About.com

"If you're a beginner quilter, this is wonderful, as it helps not only with the size, colors, design etc., you can see what your quilt will look like before you even begin. In the month that I have had this, I couldn't count how many blocks I have made and I have 2 quilts finished. Easy to use. It is not for the advanced quilter for sure, but for us 'newbies' it is great." - Anonymous

"Great instructions for finding my way into computer-aided quilting. The instructions are suited for those of us more comfortable with fabric than the computer. How nice to have a tool to help visualize what differences a change of fabric can make to a block, or an entire quilt." - Anonymous

"I was fearful of quilt designing software, having played with a few free online programs. I had felt so limited by the programs online, thinking I was not creative in the least. Quilt Design Wizard has unleashed the designer within me that I did not realize existed!.... I highly recommend this software to any quilter who is reluctant about buying a program for their computer. It is not only perfect for beginning designers like myself, but is also great for those who are not the most computer savvy. It walks you through each step, making creation easy and almost foolproof. The price is also great compared to other programs out there. This is a great way to ease yourself in to quilt design via computer." Read the full review. - Trisha Bleau, StashBuilders

"After using, I purchased another for a gift for my sister. Easy tutorials, lots of different color fabrics (with names so you can find them to purchase later). Only drawback, limited number of blocks to choose from. Would love to see program to alter existing blocks. A great tool to use for the new quilt planner. Also lists amount of yardage needed along with templates, and paper piecing patterns. Something for everyone!" - Anonymous
