This Christmas table runner is one of my projects from last year. I made two of them at the same time and gave one away as a gift. Sometimes, it doesn't take much more effort to make two things than it does to make one, especially if it is a small project.
This quilt pattern is generally called a "coin", as the stacking of fabric strips is reminiscent of the edges of stacked coins. I once saw a very attractive coin quilt of sorts made with both short and long, and fat and thin strips. It was entitled "Foreign Currency". I thought that was pretty clever. This runner has uniformly sized "coins", halves of 5" charm squares to be precise; the other halves were used in the twin runner. The charms were from Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding collection. The backing and binding yardage are of the same. The jelly roll sashing is Moda, Bella Solids in Snow.
I made some marzipan fruits today, they look right at home on my runner.
