Join us on a TQS exclusive 12-month historic journey recreating the historic Rajah Quilt, sewn by women convicts on board the ship Rajah traveling from England on April 1841 to the penal colony of Van Diemen's Land-now known as Tasmania. The original quilt measured at approximately 128" x 128", but Lessa recreated it in quarter scale with fabrics from her stash. She used many different scraps, imagining that's what might have happened when the original quilt was being made. She followed the colors of the original quilt loosely, and tea dyed fabrics that didn't look old enough. You can obtain the same look with reproduction fabrics, or make a more contemporary-looking version like the one created for TQS.

Possibly needleturn or maybe even eppIf I can track down enough suitable paper. Unfortunately my machine doesn't do a button hole stitch and I don't like/care for machine satin stitch and I'm not too sure of raw edge for myself either - I'm something of a traditionalist in my tastes for the most part.

PS before you dismiss the idea of epp have a look at this http://www.quiltmuseum.org.uk/collections/heritage/all/1700-1740/1718-coverlet.html which is all epp.

Gee, everyone's progress so far looks great. I'm still plugging away on the hand-appliqued crosses.

Finished month 3. I decided to leave the corner flowers off as I liked more white space. Ready for month 4
