The Pendleton Fabric Palette was inspired by an American Indian blanket made by the Pendleton Woollen Company. The blanket that inspired me was in this book. Not only do I love the color palettes in the book but I also loved the patterns in the blankets. Today I decided to make a block inspired by one of the blanket patterns.
If you are interested in the fabrics in the palette you can get all of the information here.
Here's the block I designed. I fully recognize that this block would be a total pain to make but if you make it 24" square it would not take so long to make enough blocks for a quilt. Here are the quilts that I came up with. I added horizontal sashing to some for an added design element like many of the blankets in the book.
In this one I rotated alternating blocks.
