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.
I'm using a new product, Quilters Select Print & Piece for the foundation piecing. It is easy to stitch on and went through the printer one sheet at a time. Tried stacking the sheets and printing but they stuck together. It is partially water soluble so it won't have to be removed which I find a bit tire some to do. My only concern is the bulk in the seam allowance when it has to be pressed open. Anyone tried this product before?
