The light one is made from donated strips of like fabrics (which is why there isn't a lot of variance in the shades of color. It was given to a charity. The dark one was made for donation, but the ladies in my small group (at that time) twisted my arm to keep it. Didn't take a lot to convince me because I was having a hard time giving it up. So now it is a wall hanging for me!
