    This site is so cool. I’ve just created the cutest dress with the new sidewalk cafe fabric by Marcus fabrics. I love being able to see how the fabrics look together. Thanks Emily for your great fabrics and now this website.

  2. Wendi DeMille says:

    I tried patternjam out at the HMQS and it was so cool. I was able to try out material I liked in different combinations. But more importantly, I was able to see what combinations didn’t work! That will save me a lot of heartache. Great idea. I will use this a lot!!

    I visited Pattern jam, and created a quilt. It is pretty neat to be able to do that. It would be neat to be able to put in any fabrics from any fabric line. Also I designed a pattern with sashing, but it didn’t add any sashing on the outsides of the blocks, just before the outer border. Also, I couldn’t see very well how to navigate back to change some things without having to start all over again. The idea is really neat.

    • emily says:

      Thanks for the feedback, Martha~ We plan on doing some upgrades to the website as we go along and the sashing is one item on the list!

    Had fun playing with designs and fabric. great site.

  5. Laurie says:

    This is an awesome site. It would be cool to be able to rotate the blocks when designing a quilt. It’s pretty awesome to see what it would look like though, and you have amazing fabric to choose from!

    You make me love Fabric even more!!!!!!!

  7. Wanda Birkestrand says:

    WOW, I tried your Build a Quilt and then had it calculate the fabric yardage. What an “Awesome” product and using the new Rosecliff fabric.

  8. Cecilia says:

    I “built” a quilt on Pattern Jam and I enjoyed auditioning the different fabrics. It was fairly simple and fun!

  9. Shar says:

    I thought the program was very easy to use. There are so many features available I will have to keep it up on my tabs to play with for awhile. I loved the ideas.

  20. I’m excited to try this. It is fun to change the fabrics and see the differences. I would like to be able to change the colores of the 3 bows on the one children’s dress. Of course i could probably figure it out but it is fun that you have done all of this!!

  21. Scot Barrow says:

    Pattern Jam makes it quick and easy to see how your fabrics will look. It’s great!

  22. delsie says:

    First time to use a “design your quilt,” it was easy and smooth to navigate. I am pleased with the save and the print option. The process was flawless.
