According to Wikapedia, the QR (Quick Response) Code was first created by the Toyota company, in 1994, to track vehicles during manufacture. Since then, the black and white code has become one of the most popular types of two-dimensional bar codes and allows a product to be decoded at a high rate of speed. You see them everywhere: on the back of cereal boxes, in magazine ads, promotions for tourist attractions..... I even saw one in my church bulletin last week!
I always think the codes look like little quilts, so decided I should have one of my own..In my own colors though...no black and white for me! Two colors are a bit boring, so I added an accent too....a place for your eye to land!
Wanting the code to represent Lollyquiltz, I hid some personal information among all those little squares. Maybe you can spot them....my initials, a face and a cross. I know the piecing looks daunting, with all those mosaic tile size pieces, but I figured out a slick way to get them together without losing my mind completely! It's not perfect, but then, neither am I.
A larger wall-quilt version is in the works now and I'll be leading a workshop on making this fun project at the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild retreat in late March. What colors would you choose if you made your own QR Code?
