    Default Dad's new quilt

    yesterday Dad turned 92 and he wanted a new quilt for his bed. More colorful.
    So I made him this one. He loves it so much he didn't want to put it on his bed. He thinks it's too precious. I showed him some scraps from Mom's nighties and also some other familymember's scrap.
    He turned around and said mischieviously: "hopefully they won't get me tonight and let me sleep in peace."
