A computer quilt company in Georgia has announced that it is planning to sell its software to businesses for use in their business.
The Bmc software company announced on Thursday that it has filed for a trademark on “computer quilt” software, which the company calls “BMC Quilter.”
The trademark application, filed on April 12, marks the second time the company has filed a trademark for “quilting” software.
The trademark applications are being considered for possible registration by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
Bmc quilters will be able to use the software in its QuilTray software for making quilts, including quilted blankets and quilts with a variety of colors and patterns.
BMC quilter is also developing an automated machine that can make quilts in minutes.
“We’re very excited to be the first company to bring quilts to the market,” Bmc President and CEO Brian O’Connell said in a statement.
“Our goal is to bring this technology to businesses across the country.”
Bmc started in the 1980s, when O’Donnell, a former software engineer, and his brother, Robert, founded the company with a small team of friends.
The brothers sold the company to a family trust in 1996.
It was spun off in 2011.
The company’s software has been used by businesses such as FedEx and United Airlines.
