I have a dumb question. If the name and address on the label doesn't help how will the code help?

The problem still remains unless the label is a part of the quilt. If it can be removed easily then no identification will exist on the quilt.

It's not a dumb question, Frarose! It will help because you don't have to put your personal information on the quilt. I've never been a fan of putting my personal address or phone number on the quilt. The QR code will take the finder to your web page, where they can contact you directly.

The thought of a stranger knocking on my door scares me anymore - there are too many crazy people out there!

Hi Carol! I completely agree with you. However, I normally put my labels on my backing BEFORE I quilt them, so the label becomes a permanent part of the quilt. The quilting would have to be torn out of the quilt to get the label off, and it's difficult to re-quilt a quilt exactly as it was before. I don't mind that the label has flowers quilted on it - I know the label is quilted down and can't be easily removed.

It's still missing, unfortunately.

That is a clever idea. But the very idea of someone stealing a quilt and then entering it into a quilt show, well, that really does take a criminal mind!!! I'd at least go to the judges and show them pictures of the quilt in my house, or with my kids, etc. And make such a fuss that this person would be humiliated enough so she would not steal another quilt.

What about tags you can sew inside the quilt, sorta like microchips for dogs and cats? Ones that can be washed and still work? Or, even better, ones like the On-Star finders put on cars?

Seems to me I've read recently something like that for expensive purses and thousands of dollar boots. Was it here?

I'm not sure, but I think the microchips require special equipment. The On-Star program requires satellites.

I think this is a brilliant idea because all you need is a smart phone, and if you don't have one, the person standing next to you probably does.

Great idea.Isn't technology wonderful?
I have heard about putting the label on before it is quilted, sounds like a plan.
