    Doris' Code Talkers quilt

    Here's another beauty from Doris (gosh, I must say I am one lucky person to get to quilt some of Doris' quilts) This one is pieced mostly from fabrics that she had in her stash. It measures 76 by 91. So colorfull and interesting looking at all different patterns in it. I chose a pantograh pattern which I think worked very well without taking away from the piecing Doris has done.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    we've seen a lot of strip quilts, but none with a patchwork for a strip. Very unusual. Very Beautiful.

    What is the name of the pantograph? Where did you get it, company name? Is it a hard one to follow? Your quilting looks so nice on a busy beautiful quilt. Thanks!

    Is Doris a descendant of one of the Navajo Code Talkers of WWII? I've read about them, but had never seen textile art that commemorates their work. Beautiful work from you and Doris.

    Now for a design like this, I would not mind doing the smaller blocks. This idea works well in the overall design and if I saw this at a show, I would stand in front of it for a very long time, absorbing the design. This is not a boring or simple quilt. You chose a very good quilting design which enhanced it. I just LOVE it when the quilting works with and adds to the original design of the quilt.

    What a neat quilt! Panto was definitely the way to go on this one.

    She certainly is a unique quilter.

    Love, love, love! I always add a few scraps of shirting plaids to my quilts, having a quilt-full of them is a treat to see. Thanks for sharing!

    Fabulous and awesome quilt and inspiration. So creative. The simple quilting suits this beauty so well. I like that panto, what is the name please?

    I love this quilt and you are right, your quilting does not take away from the pattern but adds to it.

    Love the maker's creativity in using her scraps. WOW. I agree, a pantograph was the way to go. Your beautiful quilting would have gotten lost or it would have taken away from the interesting design. Great teamwork.

    I tried to copy this to Word, but it wouldn't come up. Sure is worth looking at. A lot. Super beautiful.
