Whoo Hoo!!! Success!!!

I'm not sure what I'm more excited about...being finished with the piecing, or the fact that when you scan the quilt live with the phone apps that do such things, it really does take you to my blog!!!  I was worried that the color selection, the fact that the points aren't perfect and/or not being completely flat might make a difference.

A huge thanks to Linda & John for letting me show up at their house on a Sunday afternoon with a weird request to test-drive my QR code. John also made his neighbor stop doing yard work to try it on his phone. Success twice! It was very cool to see the computer geeks as excited about this idea as I was.  Huge thanks also to my daughter who helped me double check the placement of all the squares.  We did find one incorrect one (right in the middle), which probably would have taken you to a porn site instead of my quilt blog had I not fixed it.

I am going to save the quilting for some other weekend and get back to some lovely, relaxing applique for the final afternoon of my vacation.

That is so cool! Had to show my husband, he was equally impressed. :)

What a cool quilt! When I first saw the photo on my blog list, I right away thought it was a code and wondered what kind of an applique post it was and lo and behold it WAS a code. I'd try it if I had a phone that did that.

Congrats on a great project.

AHhh. All is revealed! The whole concept is just amazing. Enjoy the time out after this eye boggling deed.

Great! What size is it?

That is pretty cool. You are probably the only one that has thought to do that!

Maybe if I had had a phone that did that I might have been a bit better guessed. A mis-placed block? Blame the drunken Panda ... he seems to be hiding.

Amanda said...

The picture you took above works too! I used my phone and it read your QR Code quilt and brought up your blog. Very cool!

What a great idea - I'm so glad it worked!

Raewyn said...

I am very impressed!! The whole app thing is beyond me but I appreciate what you've done!!! (Its a bit of a scary thought where a misplaced block or seam could take you!)

Great job and what a lot of work! These APPs sure have us looking at things differently!

Amy said...

Way to go, Marjorie! All that piecing was worth it!

I love it! I'm new to your blog, having seen your quilt on WIP Wednesday. It's a fabulous idea.

That is nuts, but brilliant! My first thought was "does it work" and I'm so impressed it does. What a bonkers, but cool idea!

Great idea for a very unique quilt! Thanks for sharing.

Susanne said...

AWESOME!!!! I've been working on mine for a gift for my older brother....but I haven't touched it in a while. You've given me the motivation to get back on it ; )

As long as it's done before Christmas we'll be good : ) LOL!!!

if we scan it, what will happen? free fabric for all?

Foolish Feathers said...

What a fun idea! Congrats on making it work! I wish I had a phone that scans, i might have my friend give it a try when she comes over tonight!

Georgina said...

Amazing!!

Lynne said...

And it really works! Fantastic!

Leslie said...

I've been working on one of these myself, but got delayed with customer's Christmas quilts. Glad to know it works.

Awesome! I saw your thumbnail in the WIP Wednesday list so came over to see your QR quilt. I made one last year using my GO! Baby to cut the 2" squares...mine goes to my local modern quilt guild's website. I thought we could display it when our guild is participating in public events. There are some really cool ones if you search in flickr...with embroidery, cross stitch..etc. Fun!
