History

Huck was my father and he has always wanted a farm. At 78 he had the money and the time for a farm, but his family did not want him to be so isolated. So we got together and made him a quilt for his wall that is ‘Huck’s farm’. When he was alive he would go there every day from his study in Manly, Sydney
The quilt is now hung at the farm of one of his sons/grandsons.
