QR Code Wall Hanging Quilt Along

I have seen this new codes called QR Codes for a few years now, it seems that last year they pop all over the place. My last visit to BYU campus last fall I saw them in all rooms and places we visit, Magazines have them, advertisements, even mail. The other day I got inspired to make a wall hanger quilt inspired on this new QR Codes and thought you might want to do it with me. So I am doing a quit Along. I will post every Thursday.
Here is the Calendar:
February 24: Requirements.
March 1: Blocks 1 & 3
March 8: Blocks 2 & 4
March 15: Blocks 5 & 6
March 22: Blocks 7 & 8
March 29: Block 9 & Finishing Top
April 5: Quilting, Binding and finishing Wall quilt.

He visto estos nuevos codigos llamados QR Codes ya por varios anos, y parece que han ploriderado en este ultimo ano. Mi ultima visita al campus de BYU el otono pasado vi estos codigosen todos lados, entradas y por donde quiera que visitamos. tambien los hemos visto en revistas, propaganda en el periodico, hasta en el correo. El otro dia pense que seria una gran idea el hacer un acolchado para la pared inspirado en los QR Codes y pense que talvez les interesara seguirme y hacer uno de estos tambien asi es que estoy haciendo un SAL o QAL. Pondre entradas todos los jueves y este es el calendario:
Febrero 23: Materiales, dimensiones y preparacion.
Marzo 1: Bloques 1 & 3
Marzo 8: Bloques 2 & 4
Marzo 15: Bloques 5 & 6
Marzo 22: Bloques 7 & 8
Marzo 29: Bloque 9 & terminacion del top
Abril 5: Acolchado, Bies terminado del acolchado.

Now, I will try to follow this calendar as much as I can, however my parents are coming next week for a visit and I might be a bit busy. I have everything planned and I am quite ahead but you never know.
I hope you find this quilt interesting. I am approaching the new modern quilt side and this wall hanging quilt will be perfect for a modern room or an office very suitable for a guy.
Now you have seen the QR Codes come in different colors and you are welcome to do the color you best like. I'll do the classic black and white but there is no wrong or right way it is all about you taste.
I hope you follow me.

Ahora, tratare de seguir el calendario lo mejor posible, sinembargo mis padres vendran a visitarme la siguiente semana y estare un poco ocupada. Ya tengo todo planeado y estoy avansada en el projecto pero uno nunca sabe.
Espero que encuentren este SAL interesante. Estoy entrando en los acolchados modernos y este acolchado para la pared es perfecto para una officina o un regalo para alguien con decoracion contemporaria o mas masculino.
He mostrado QR Codes que vienen en diferentes colores y definitivanente los colores que escojan estaran perfectos aqui no hay errores, pero yo lo hare en blanco y negro.
Espero que me sigan. Algo mas, aunque siempre he tratado de escribir en Ingles y en Espanol espero poder poner todas las instrucciones en los dos idiomas, si no lo hago cuando pongo las entradas primero, lo hare poco despues gracias

I was waiting for Darlette to post but since she hasn't well here I am. Darlette has told me how great is to sew with knits and she bought some knits at I wasn't sure, but a friend offered me some knit scraps perfect for little people pants. So I went and found this tutorial it is really easy and I put myself to work.
I made this two for little K and they work just fine. I made four more for miss G and miss A and are just perfect. Now I love working with knits.

Potato Baker Bag

I had this kit for a while and last weekend. I finally decided to make it. It is a super easy and fast project if you are making just one. But, when I bought the kit I also bought all the materials to make several more to give as gifts. So That was the reason I did not do it earlier. Anyway I spend Saturday afternoon making them and with the permanent ink and some stamps I made mini tags.Tenia este kit ya desde hace tiempo. Finalmente decidi hacerlo, es un projecto super facil y rapido si haces uno. Pero cuando compre el kit tambian compre todo para hacer muchos mas para darlos como regalos. Asi es que esa es la razon por la cual no lo habia hecho antes. En fin me pase toda la tarde del Sabado haciendolos ademas de hacer unas mini etiquetas con la tinta permanente y unos sellos que tenia.

Have a great day!

Tokyo Subway Map quilt done

Yeah, it has been a while since Elizabeth did the quilt along. I did finished the top over a year now but I just got to quilting it. Hubby helped me posing (his kind of posing) with the quilt. Darlette and I decided to make the squares bigger and the Japanese words in front because we both Linkwanted them to be a queen size.
Si, ya tiene tiempo que Elizabeth hizo este quilt along. Termine el top hace un ano pero apenas y lo acolche. Mi esposo me ayudo posando (las poses que le gustan) con el acolchado. Darlette y yo decidimos hacer los cuardos mas grandes y las palabras enfrente porque lo hicimos para camas tamano queen.Have a great weekend!
