I don't know the name of the pattern but you would decide how large you want your squares.  Use strips to make the squares going from light to dark.  Then cut HSTs and reverse the triangles so that the dark strip sews to the light strip.  These squares are then set on point to give the braided look.

Thankyou Ladies! That makes a little bit more sense to me now, although its still a very complicated pattern to me. Im a beginner but my mom has been quilting for years so maybe she can help understand what im supposed to do here. I LOVE this quilt and I really want to try making one like this for my next project. Are the rows diagonal with half square triangles on the end?

When I see it I dont see HST's but a square made from 4 strips gradiating value, same color.  then cutting that square of strips diagonally and piecing it with anthor cut square of srrips that has same fabric but in reverse order?

To me it looks like that fabric that comes in strips of different tones of a same color. If its that then they would simply be fall squares triangles, right? Sorry I can't remember the fabric line but a friend of mine used it to make her daughter a quilt, which is why I remember.

Here ya go, Joni.  So pretty!!  I can't believe someone Goodwill'd that.  I agree with Nana and Annie, and it sounds to me like you're saying the same thing!  :)

1.  Make squares of 4 rows each, graduated light to dark..  (Optional time-saver:  You can make long strips first and cut the long strips into squares)

2.  Cut the squares into HSTs and arrange.

I actually found this pattern at Keepsake Quilting.  It is called Prism Pyramids.  They also have a kit for the quilt that is different colors from the one you found.
