It is that time of year again! Amy over at Amy’s Creative Side is once again hosting the Blogger’s Quilt Festival.
I’ve decided to enter my QR Code quilt into the Original Design Category this time.
Here’s the story behind the making of the quilt. I used a free online QR Code generator to get this:
It was a good move. It was like a jigsaw puzzle to put all the pieces in place and that was quite fun! This shows all the squares fused in place.
Next came borders and quilting. I wasn’t sure how the quilting would go with the layer of fusible in this, but it worked out just fine.
I quilted this in a simple free hand grid. No rulers. I just eyeballed the middle of each one inch square. When I got all the lines done in one direction, I took it off the long arm frame and rotated it 90 degrees and reloaded it. I love this backing fabric from Ikea!
You can see the quilting better here. It is far from exact, but it works for me.
And there you have it. A long story indeed for a small quilt! Best of all, it works! If you have a QR Code scanner app on your phone or mobile device and scan this quilt (even the picture of it), it will bring you to my blog! How cool is that? It makes this nerdy little heart happy🙂.
Head on over to Amy’s Creative Side to see more of the Blogger’s Quilt Festival! You may even win some prizes.
Have a great day!
