Rajah quilt (Carol Gaston)

Inspired by the Rajah: Quilt Exhibition

Unnamed women convicts aboard the ship Rajah travelling from England to Van Diemen’s Land in 1841 made the Rajah Quilt, said to be one of the world’s most significant textiles. At an unknown point after its arrival in Tasmania, the quilt was returned to England and gifted to Elizabeth Fry who formed the Quaker group, The British Ladies Society for the Reformation of Female Prisoners in 1816. Rediscovered in 1987, where the quilt had been in the previous 147 years remains unknown. The Rajah Quilt has been an inspiration for South Australian collectives including this Fleurieu based group.
