In 2007, Lessa received the coveted Rajah Award, which prompted her to make her own version of the iconic Australian quilt.
While the original quilt is held in the National Gallery of Canberra and is 126” square, Lessa’s quilt is 63” square, and after many requests she wrote to the gallery and with permission has written a pattern.
The pattern, is now available as a digital download and has been very popular both here and in the USA. It can be machine pieced or English Paper pieced. The pattern, which has great instructions has directions for both. Applique is a component of the pattern’s centre, but Broderie Perse or a panel could be used as well.
The Rajah Quilt Pattern is the Quilt Show’s block of the month for 2016. Due to this the pattern is not available at www.2SewTextiles.Etsy or Craftsy. for 2016. To enquire further please email Brenda at TwoSewTextiles@Yahoo.com.au To read more about Lessa Click here.
