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.
When Lessa was on your show (I just watched it today) she demonstrated a flying geese technique that required her chart for measurement of the squares. You mentioned that she could send her chart to put on the TQS website and she agreed that was a good idea.
Did that happen and if so where do I locate it?
I thoroughly enjoyed the show by the way. She is a treat and had lots of great tips.
