Barbara Black's quilt, "Red and White - By the Numbers," was selected as the commemorative quilt for the Ruby Jubilee, the 40th celebration of the International Quilt Festival.  Now Barbara is working on the TQS BOM 2016, "Rajah Quilt Revisited" and sharing her work in her blog, "MY JOYFUL JOURNEY: My life as a Quiltmaker and a Quilt Teacher. All things QUILT!"

Barbara's already made one change to her "Rajah Quilt Revisited" that you might want to think about if you find the center appliqué a bit daunting.  She has elected to use a vintage textile as the center.
If you find a vintage textile and it isn't quite big enough for the center of the quilt, you can always add "coping" strips, otherwise known as an inner border around the textile, to bring it up to the correct size.

Barbara, I remember you way-back when Quiltmaker's in Trussville was open. I worked there for Annie. Your quilt is so pretty. Great to see you.
