We're always talking about how important it is to label your quilt.  With a StoryPatch, you can add a label that even includes a video, photo, or audio recording.
  • You can use it to let future generations hear your voice - record a message to your grandchild and attach it right to the quilt.
  • Create a video for future reference on how you made the quilt, including how you assembled a block or tips from the class in which you made it.
  • Discuss the quilt itself...why you made it; what inspired you.

I thought this would be so cool for quilts for babies born to my techie friends, but I always put the label on the quilt before it is quilted, so the label is quilted through and can't be removed or altered later. Now I find out that you can't stitch in/on/over the QR code itself, so if I send the quilt out to be quilted by someone else, it's possible the code could be stitched through, and thereby damaged. Turns out not to be such a great idea for me after all.

I'm with Liz on this. I do my labels the old fashion way and include the legend and all other information I want to pass on. Not everything needs to be electronically connected.

I found a video on YouTube that explains these patches very well. I'm ordering some! Thanks, TQS, for letting us know about them.

I will be sticking with normal labels as technology changes so often and stuff (eg VHS tapes ) become obsolete.

As I understand the process...

When you place an order you receive four cloth labels that come pre-printed with 'unique-to-you' codes. Then you go to the Story Patches app, choose what information you want to add to your label (to the patch code), and then, to access the information one scans the code with their phone, tablet etc using a 'QR code reader' app (there are many out there and Story Patchs has one too).

It sounds complicated, but it's not.

You can purchase labels with the codes at the StoryPatches website - www.storypatches.com. The labels you purchase come pre-printed with your own unique code on a 6" x 4" cotton label. Once you receive your labels, you simply sew them on like any other label.

How does one get the patch to the label?

I am also confused as to how to get label with patch

It seems, Margo, that the fabric already has the patch on it. That's why it says to create your design around it.

I wish this article explained HOW to transfer the patch to your fabric!
