I just saw this on an Episode of The Quilt Show and it is a really great idea, so I am sharing it here. You know those little square black and white codes that you are seeing everywhere in magazines, on store ads, etc? You can now put one on your quilt, in a scrapbook, or in a greeting card!
It’s called a QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response Code) and is an optically machine-readable label that is attached to an item and that records information related to that item. For your quilt, it can be an audio message, a video message, a photo, or text.
Go to http://www.stkr.it for more info. You can get an iron on or a sew in QR label to apply to your quilt. You can upload or record your message with your smart phone (and their free app) and then it can be read by anyone with a smart phone. It can also be accessed by taking the number on the label and going to the stkr.it website, where you can enter the number and get access to the message that way.
If you are a member of The Quilt Show, they have a video showing use of the product taken at the recent Quilt Market in Portland.
