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.

Dahlialady, your quilt is beautiful - your choice of the William Morris fabrics was a perfect complement!

Congratulations!!! That is beautiful. I love your colours and the over all effect is gorgeous. You have inspired me to finish off my last two borders and get them attached. I have been distracted with Christmas preparations but I really want to finish my Rajah Quilt :)

It is finished and I really like the way it turned out using my William Morris jewel tone fabrics. Just have to quilt it now. Looking forward to the next TQS Block of the Month. :cheer:
