    Cute idea!

    I just saw this on Craig's List - someone offering to custom-make QR Code quilts - to say anything you want it to!

    http://columbus.craigslist.org/art/2861385443.html

    I don't have enough time to make the quilts that I want to for myself and for gifts. I sure wouldn't have time to make quilts for someone else.

    I just thought it is a cute, and up-to-date idea!

    They are cute! Saw these in a 2010 issue of Quilter's Newsletter just this morning at guild, but I believe the CLister's are better, sweeter.

    Well, I think I am getting old. I had to go to Google and educate myself as to what CR code was. (An interesting possibility for a modern looking quilt) Then I read Jan's reply and now I have to figure out what CLister is. Will this madness never end? Ann in TN

    Edited: Ok Jan, I still can't figure out CLister. . . Que Pasa? Thanks, Ann

    The quilts are cute but Craig's List scares me. I've read way too many bad things about it.

    Well Ann don't feel like the 'Lone Stranger' in this every changing techno world. I 'got' Clister....oh I'm so savvy....BUT even Googling CR code I'm still confused....the Craigs list states longer phrases will require more fabric????? Where is the phrase??? Can someone explain CR code? Oh....savvy is gone and feelings of really old creeping in :0)

    Go to this site: http://qrcode.kaywa.com/ this site allows you to create your own Quick Response icon. On the right side click the "test' button and below type in something like your name or a short phrase and click the "generate" button and a QR icon will appear. Very clever. You can actually then add it to your emails or web site or blog. Example, in your emails under your signature you could have one of these QR icons with your blog address.

    You take a picture of it with your smart phone. The software on the smart phone will open up a browser window and show you the information associated with that QR code, be it a website, address and phone number, email, just about anything. This is how I label all my quilts. If one of my quilts gets lost, I have my website address and contact info embedded into the code, which is then printed on the label.

    If you're interested in doing this, or curious about how it works, my friend Cindi wrote an informational post and tutorial about putting QR codes on your quilts here:
