SOUTHWEST DEJA VU #1 is an 18 3/4″ x 18 3/4″ wall hanging containing seven machine appliqued New Mexico blocks: Carlsbad Caverns, Chilies, a Horno, Taos Pueblo, the Gila Cliff Dwellings, Camel Rock and Pueblo Ruins. But as the term deja vu implies, the blocks may remind you of other landmarks you have seen.
The pattern contains full-sized diagrams of each block and reversed applique patterns for use with sewable paper-backed fusible web. The Taos Pueblo block is made using my “Needle and Thread Tracing” technique. There are seven options for arranging the blocks, and a swatch of the sky fabric is included in the pattern.
Although designed without sashing and borders, a layout including sashing and borders is in the pattern. That wall hanging will finish at 26″ x 26″.
The block sizes of Southwest Deja vu #1 and #2 are the same, so one might swap a 6″ x 6″ block or a 6″ x 10″ block, for example, from one pattern to the other.
Pattern is 27 pages of text and diagrams in a 9″ x 12″ plastic bag.
