you did an awesome job with a difficult assignment! having made about 20 t-shirt quilts for customers, I know how difficult it can get to add in so many different fabrics, and so many different shapes (those scarves!). and you really went above & beyond with the pillow and bags. I sure hope that your customer paid you well for all your creativity and work.

It's called a Storypatch label. The technology part is handled by the StickerIt company.

You should be proud of your work and I’m sure your customer will appreciate your dedication and talent. Great job.

Awesome. I just finished a 20 t-shirt University of Alabama Quilt. Yours is so cool. I’m going to incorporate the QR code in mine, too. Thanks for the suggestion.

Wow, Amazing... I've made a few t-shirt quilts, but I LOVE how you treated the borders on yours. You've inspired me!

The quilt also has a QR code where my customer can record a voice message before she gifts it to her grandson.

Can you give further info on QR Code for voice message?
