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.

Finally finished Month 8. Very tedious and hard to get back to since I was on vacation for 3 weeks. Glad it is done. Measurements came out 48 1/2" square. Hurray!!!

I had to set my Rajah Quilt project aside after completing month 4 in order to work on a (late!) graduation quilt and a crib quilt for a soon-to-be great niece. But I wanted to post to say that this month I received the Rajah Quilt book published by the museum. It is a nice way to commemorate the rediscovery and exhibition that featured the quilt and I am glad I bought it. It is definitely not an instructional or a coffee table sort of book. The book is small; the text is printed in very small type; and the pictures are small, though sometimes quite detailed. Since apparently very little of the history of the quilt is known, the book's narrative is brief and speculative. I hope that the monthly historical sketches and quilt pattern, etc., on TQS will be expanded upon and turned into a book at some point. It will probably hit the presses before my project is finally completed! So many quilts, so little time...

You can only download the BOM instructions if you are a star member. The new pattern becomes available on the first of each month. Non-star members don't have access to the pattern at all.

I thought if you were a star member you could get the BOM download a day earlier? Not available.
