Based on the true story of a quilt made by convict women
on board the Rajah, bound for Australia.


Lizzie Flynn has nothing but her name when she boards the Rajah bound for the penal colony of Australia. On board, the convict women were given a 'useful bag' containing, among other things, fabric and needle and thread. They were taught to sew, and together they made the Rajah quilt, which is currently housed in the National Library.
