This repeating geometric design reminded me of coins made throughout the medieval world, often featuring cross designs. Worked in shades of pewter gray and olive green to mimic the metals from which old coins were minted, this design is can be worked in the square arrangement as shown (nice for cushion covers or as a square table mat), or as a long table runner with a larger piece of cloth.

A few words about this design: I haven't stitch-tested these colors yet, but they looked really great when I put all the cones together. You may choose to work this design with slightly different colors based upon your personal preference.
