Possibly my naughtiest post title ever. Love it.
My guild held a summer sew-in today and I was able to complete the quilting and binding of my QR Code Quilt. I kept scanning it along the way to make sure the quilting stitches and the blue binding would not affect the scan-ability of the quilt. You can even scan this photo of the quilt with your smart phone and it works! Pretty cool. Thanks to my GO! Baby I was able to cut all of the 2" squares I used to construct this quilt in about 20 minutes (I did cheat; some longer strips were used wherever there were more than 5 squares of one colour in row. I'm not that obsessed with piecing!).
I quilted the entire quilt in a simple grid pattern using King Tut Superior white, 40 wt. 3-ply thread. The batting is bamboo/cotton blend. Check out the cheeky backing:
Perfect foil for a totally functional, mod quilt, don't cha think? That's a hunk of Alexander Henry's "Home Sewing is Easy" that I got on sale as a bolt end here last fall.
If you would like to make your own QR Code quilt, I've done a tute here. If you would like to WIN a GO!Baby, then enter your comment here before Thursday, July 28th.
