These quilts are a tribute to my father who was a pioneer in medicine (dialysis) and who was known for his incredible mind. I am collecting the words we often heard him say from my siblings, family and close friends.

Why use loteria cards? Loteria is a Mexican game of chance similar to bingo. Some of my dads phrases correspond with the image, some with the riddle that is part of the game, Spanish to recognize his mentee who helped care for him in his last weeks and I love the illustrations.

Sequins to add some bling which rhymes with bing and we have bingo, bit like medicine these day chancy.
