QR Quilt

Happy Good Friday. Little bit of sewing, little bit of cooking, tiny bit of housework. Finished my QR Cambridge quilt. It reads- try it!

Lorraine Roy, Dundas, Ontario

I took a collage course from Lorraine Roy last weekend- it was great.
Lot of fun working with fabrics - even the ugly ones. 
Here's the start of my three projects and a couple of my classmates work.
I'll post a picture of my work when I am done.

QR Quilt- every time I see a QR code, it reminds me of a pieced quilt - so I decided to try making a QR quilt - AND it reads! So fun. I started by enlarging the code (in a word doc.) so each square is approximately 1/4". Converting each 1/4" to 1" squares - the rest is easy. (Fused dark onto a white ground.) I have yet to quilt it, will post a pic of the finished piece. Questions, just ask. 

This is my black and white printer copy, the yellow marks are my why of keeping track of which squares I completed.

Here it is yet to be quilted or edged.
