Maxs’ Quilt by Margaret
Incorporating the “The Beer Prayer”

My brother Max lives on the Qld Gem fields. He is happiest fossicking among the stones and creeks looking for sapphires and having a beer at the end of the day with friends.
The fabrics represent his life out there, the stones the stars, the leaves from the trees, nature in general. The cobwebs represent the pranks he played on me as a child.
I enjoyed making this quilt and I thank my friend Ella for helping me choose the fabrics that made this quilt so Max.
Thanks also to Marg and Colin from “Seriously Crazy” the quilt bus that tours Queensland for their fabulous collection of fabric.

PS. He loved his 50th birthday present as did the whole town.
