From the stories folder that accompanies The Quilt to displays:

U.J. (as I called him) was a bachelor who was loved dearly by his nieces and nephews for his wonderful sense of fun and ‘joi de vive’. He was a travelling salesman for many years so touched the lives of many people but home on the weekends was a relaxed time for being with his animals (cats, dogs, birds), tending his garden and enjoying his antique collection and entertaining family and friends.

I’m now not sure that any of us knew him very well at all because his privacy protected each of us from what we didn’t want to know about.

The panel is a picture U.J. bought in America – love of colour, flowers and birds – and which I then stitched together to make suitable for the panel.

With love from one of his nieces.
