February Show and Tell 2

Sariah did this black and colored one from our half square triangle exchange last fall.
Eve did this one for charity out of leftovers.

This pattern is called a braid, and I just loved all of the orange hues.

Sariah's daughter is on an LDS mission in Detroit and sent her two antique quilts that match. They are hand pieced log cabins. They do not have batting, so we think they were either summer quilts or toppers. I think they might have been Christmas toppers, because I've seen quilts that color before, and the brown is what the green faded to over time. But I have no real expertise on the matter.
