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.

Alternatively you could use the Ricky Tims Stable Stuff.

For all those who do not like foundation piecing because of having to remove the papers afterward, I have found a solution. I've been using Select Print & Piece by Floriani. It runs through the printer very nicely. Only had to print one at a time though through my Laser printer. I did a sample block and washed and dried it in the dryer. It came out very soft and no hint of the product in the sample. This has really saved me as I have neuropathy in my right arm and having to tear all those pieces of paper out caused a great deal of pain in my arm. I thoroughly recommend this product. It is easy to stitch on. Just remember to print in Actual Size.
