    QR Code Quilt for oldest son

    I'm working on quilts for both of my boys for their Xmas presents. I like reversible quilts. I'm making both boys QR Code quilts for the backs of the quilts. I had a lot of fun making this one. If anyone wants to make one, I suggest making strip sets. I did them in 4 strips - ex black, white, white, black... then another strip set of black, black, white, black, etc... It made assembling it A LOT faster.

    Here's a close up of the fabric I used. I think both boys are going to love it

    I used the free qr code generator here... and enlarged it to 600 pixels to make it easier to print and read. http://www.the-qrcode-generator.com/

    This is so cool... I read the QR code, and it is a real QR code - a message from mom to her son - very cool and creative! (I hope you don't feel like I've invaded your privacy - I just wondered if it was a "real" QR code and so I tried reading it).
    It looks like a LOT of work though!

    No invasion of privacy at all. I should have posted what it says... his name, his favorite book when he was little and " I will always love you. Mom"

    I just started on the second one.. and ya know what.. it really isn't a lot of work at all - if you strip piece it. That makes a huge difference

    I wonder if these things will be like heiroglyphics of the future?

    Very cool - I will have to look into that. I am thinking that some of the younger generation would get a kick out of these.

    I *LOVE* this idea!! I wonder if QR codes will still be popular when my son is old enough to know what they are...

    How clever. That might be a good idea for my grandson. He wants a green and black quilt. Great job!

    I think the next one I make after finishing the ones for my kids will be one that's washing instructions lol. I'm about 1/3 the way done with my second one already... having said that, I did have some strip sets left over to get a head start on it.

    If there is interest, I'll do a tutorial on how I did mine. I streamlined a lot by doing it with strip sets.

    I changed the pixels to 600 to make it easier to print out and read.

    I'll work up a mini tutorial. It will be after the holidays before I can get one complete with fabric requirements. I didn't measure before I started. I wish I had because then I'd be able to whip it up and have it posted. I just picked out fabric that I knew I had a lot of and could get more if need be. I hope I can get more of that white I used.. if not, I'll be subbing out another white as I work on the 2nd one... which will hopefully be done tonight

    I love QR code quilts. Here's another idea to use them. I printed small copies of the code to fabric and then cut them up and used it like a normal B&W fabric. You can still read the code depending on how large or small you print. I did an applique Q of the names of the animals our kids have and then used the fabric for their tails, the inside of ears,belly, etc.

    'Scuse the lousy quality on the photo. Each block has some, or a lot, of the qr code fabric in it. (The B&W kitty with the purple belly in all qrcode.) I was is a big hurry to get it into a suitcase to get it on an airplane. I wanted to us small copies repeated for a border but ran our of time. Ah well................
