Jelly Roll Challenge : Project 3

Project #3 of the Jelly Roll Challenge

is a simple table runner.

This would be perfect for just about any season/ jelly roll

and it can be created


Supplies Needed:
  • (8) Coordinating jelly roll strips or (8) 2  1/2" X Width of Fabric (WOF) strips. I used 12 Days of Christmas by Kate Spain for Moda.
  • 1/2 Yard of Bella Solid Ivory
  • 1/2 Yard of Bella Solid Red for binding
  • 1 Yard of Coordinating fabric for backing
  • 3/4 yard of batting
  • From the Bella Solid Ivory, cut (8) 6 1/2" X 8 1/2" rectangles


Step 1:
  • Choose (8) coordinating jelly roll strips.
  • With Right Sides Together (RST) , sew (2) jelly roll strips together.
  • Repeat for the other jelly roll strips.
  • Press open.

Step 2:
  • With RST, sew (2) jelly roll strip sets together.
  • Repeat and make (2) 8 1/2" X WOF strip sets.

Step 3:
  • Press the strip sets open.
  • You should have (2) strip sets.

Step 4:
  • From the first strip set, cut (4) 6 1/2" X 8 1/2" blocks.

Step 5:
  • From the second strip set, cut (3) 8 1/2" X 18 1/2" rectangles.

Step 6:
  • With RST, join the blocks according to the following diagram.
  • Press the block open.
  • Repeat and make a total of (4) 8 1/2" X 18 1/2" blocks.

Step 7:
  • With RST, join the blocks according to the following diagram.
  • Press the block open.
  • Repeat and make (3) sets.

Step 8:
  • With RST, join the 3 sections together.
  • Be sure to add the final white/jelly roll strip set/white section to the bottom.

Step 9:
  • Make a quilt sandwich using the quilt top, batting, and backing fabric.
  • Baste the layers together.
  •  Quilt as desired.
  • Attach the binding to the table runner.
Voila! Your table runner is now complete.

Until Next Time .... Happy Quilting!
