QR code quilt

Qr quilt1

Excellent! QR code quilt by Spoonflower, via MAKE.

A QR code, or Quick Response code is a somewhat new technology that, when scanned by a smart phone or iPad app, takes you to a website or texts you with more information about a product. You see them everywhere now, from cereal boxes to bus stops. From the moment Jake got his new phone, he was obsessed with them. I remember he used to talk about how production at Spoonflower could be more efficient if we could just walk around scanning QR codes to look up orders and find out information about rolls of fabric. As for me, I just liked how they resembled little patchwork quilts. So when the staff challenge was announced, the idea of making a QR code quilt seemed perfect.

Our first step was to pick our QR code. Every web page has a corresponding code, so we had a lot of silly ideas about what site to choose. For loyalty’s sake we chose Spoonflower and with a simple free online code generator, Jake was able to print out an image of the QR code for the Spoonflower site. We used this as a guide for our quilt.

We added it to our QR section, which is growing at a steady clip. Got a QR project we haven’t seen? Post a link in the comments.
