I’ve completed another ten string diamonds for the String Along!
I included labels from my dad’s shirts in some of the blocks.
That little jeep scrap I’ve had for ages. I came across it when I was looking for something else and set it aside. I decided to include it in one of the blocks for a couple reasons. First, it’s my quilt and you know I love Jeeps! And secondly, this military model was produced from 1941-1945 by the Willys Overland Company, originally pronounced Will-iss. Over time, people referred to these Jeeps as Willy’s. My dad’s name was William and most people called him a Bill. However, some people called him Willy.
My mom even embroidered that on his work coveralls. My dad could fix darn near anything, including vehicles. He taught me to change a tire and change the oil in my car. He saw my Jeep, but was to ill to ride in it. I would have loved to go off-roading with him. Anyway, it seemed fitting to me that this special scrap would find a place in this quilt.
Have a great day!
