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.

It took me a while to figure out the paper foundation vs the English paper piecing. Now I've got it!
Thank you!

I believe the finished measurement to this point is 16.5 inches so your block measuring 17 inches unfinished is correct

My final measurement for month 2 of BOM is 17", not 16 1/2" (as instructions say). But if you do the math with the paper pieced blocks, it seems like it should be 17" unfinished.
I'm having trouble figuring out how to proceed to month 3, and the next border because those measurements are 'off' for me.
Can anyone help me figure out...what I did wrong...or how the pattern goes together?
