Sneak Peek at new exhibit

Here's a sneak peek at our new exhibit at the Michigan State University Museum.

QR Code Quilt
Scan it with your smart phone and see where it takes you.

I made this quilt over the weekend. I shamelessly stole the idea from a picture I saw on the Fun With Barb blog. It was made by Deirdre Abbotts of Westport, CT and was displayed at the Northern Star Quilters' Guild show. She was inspired by the red and white exhibit Infinite Variety. When I saw it I thought it would be perfect for our new exhibit Patterns of Inquiry. This exhibit will present new directions in quilt-related research. Curator Mary Worrall like the idea too and created a QR Code which I made into this quilt.

And the quilt really works. If you have a smart phone, scan the quilt's image to see where it takes you. (If, like me you don't have a smart phone, just click on the quilt.)

I hope to see some of you at the exhibit. There will be over 30 quilts. The exhibit runs from June 3 - September 23, 2012.

Till next time......Happy Quilting!


  1. I made a 110" QR quilt for my husband for christmas too, it links to radio shack, since that was a competiton they had once but I didn't finish it in time, and I don't even have a phone to try it, I know it works, others have tried...

  2. You're brave than I. Mine is only 23" square. LOL

  3. Just lots of inspiration over here!!!
