The Southwest receives many visitors each year. Most quilters enjoy finding souvenirs of fabric and patterns specific to the area. I strive to meet that need with my Southwest inspired patterns for lap quilts, wall hangings, table runners, placemats, tote and Christmas stockings.
This machine appliqued wall hanging contains seven New Mexico blocks: The Organ Mountains near Las Cruces, a Pronghorn Antelope, Palace of the Governors in Santa Fe, El Santuario de Chimayo, a Green Chile Cheeseburger, a Silver Navaho Squash Blossom Necklace, and Pueblo Bonito at Chaco Canyon. Sometimes the blocks remind quilters of areas they have seen, but not necessarily the subject of the block, and this is where the deja vu element comes into play.
Full-sized diagrams and appliques (reversed for fusible web use), are in the pattern.
Using fusible web appliques, the pattern is designed without sashing and borders. However, for a larger 25″ x 25″ wall hanging, a layout using sashing and borders is in the pattern.
There are 40 pages in the pattern including diagrams and instructions. It is packaged in a 9″ x 12″ resealable plastic bag.
