It is always fun to sit awhile with my feet up and a cup of coffee in my hand as I peruse the pretty quilt entries in the Blogger's Quilt Festival. If you are here for the show, let me say "Welcome" and I hope that you enjoy my quilt!
Having been fascinated for quite some time by the quilt-like look of those cute little QR Codes used to provide product information via a smart phone or tablet, I finally decided to try my hand at producing one in quilt form!Using a pellon grid, it was fairly simple to graph out a personal Quick Response Code. I looked at a sample to count out the squares and to design a pattern that even includes my blog name! There are online sources that will create a code for you, but I just made up my own.
The 36 inch square quilt is backed with a favorite red and white graphic print from Anilee Hoey's Sherbet Pips line by by Moda. The binding is a grey text print from my stash.
I used a pink variegated Aurifill no.28 thread and white Bottom Line in the bobbin to do the circular quilting on my Bernina 1630.
The red, pink, white, and a single orange Kona squares are a bunch more fun than black and white would be, don't you think!
