Count your Smiles!

Designed this quilt using a free bar code generator, Make the Cut software and Photoshop Elements Filters.

The top block actually reads Count your Smiles! with a QR scanner.
The center block was created with a spherize filter.
The bottom block was created with a line drawing filter.

The borders have UPC bar codes that spell the text.

Would love suggestions on how to quilt it.

I am absolutely fasinated with this quilt. I do not think you can quilt over the bar codes or where the 'reader' needs to read. Maybe heavy quilting around those areas so that they puff up.

I am not usually a fan of black and white art (I need color), but this piece is gorgeous! I absolutely love the graphics and the layers of meaning from the barcodes.
