Old Fashioned Cars
Part 3 of 9
Join Nanne for Part 3 of her 9 Block Series, Old Fashioned Cars Quilt. This quilt consists of 9 blocks each named after old car brands, some that have been in her family's possession, and others that just inspired design!
The third block is called "Lloyd", lets take a brief look into this iconic car.
Lloyd Motoren Werke G.m.b.H. (Lloyd Engine Works) was a German automobile manufacturer, created in 1908 and owned by the Norddeutscher Lloyd shipping company. The factory was in Bremen. The company operated under a variety of different names throughout the decades, but their products were nearly always badged with the Lloyd marque. Production ended for good in 1963, although a successor company continued trading until 1989, selling replacement parts and also manufacturing engines for snowmobiles and boats.
"My parents have that car when I was about 4-5 years old, I remember that the door at my moms side fell off so mom had to hold the door while we drove home" ~ Nanne
Lloyd continues the design with a unique look and feel that you will see with each block. The fabric colors really make the design stand out especially when you add the TempLee Quilt method. Get creative with your color choices and Peek-A-Boo fabric to have a Classic Car Quilt that will stand the test of time.
