At Quiltcon 2013, my sister suggested that I make a QR code quilt, but I wasn’t interested. Walking through a park in Austin, we saw a billboard with this QR code linking to the Statesman about bats and I decided that if we returned to Austin in 2015, I’d make the quilt. Michael Miller’s challenge fabric sealed the deal. Scanning this quilt will link you to the Statesman page.
My quilt measures 69″ square and I just received notice that it is not one of the quilts chosen to be in Quiltcon in Austin in February. Drats! The panel of judges had to choose from over 1,350 quilts.
The challenge was to use primarily Michael Miller’s spring solid collection. We could add a Michael Miller print to the back and binding if we wanted.
The back of the quilt says, “SCAN ME”.
This is the sign we saw in Austin.
