pop and spark !

Popping in to share the table runner I made recently for the Fat Quarter Shop's Jelly Glazed Heart Table Runner Quilt Along.

Jelly Glazed Hearts Table Runner

It's a super simple project to sew together - using just a few jelly roll strips and some yardage for the background.  I've made mine using a jelly roll in Pop by Rashida Coleman-Hale - so seventies with its vinyl records, balloon dogs, and soda pop bottles xx and the background is Spark in Lipstick from the Social range by Melody Miller - it's so luscious and dreamy too xx

To finish the table runner I stitched in the ditch around the jelly roll hearts and then stippled the background - I wanted to make sure the hearts popped and I also wanted to continue the quick and easy theme :)  The runner finishes at 19 1/2” x  68 1/2". 

I decided to go with a striped binding - even though Rashida has designed the stripe in her Pop range to run perpendicular to the selvedge.

I sewed the striped jelly roll strips together side by side and then cut them into strips and sewed those end to end - it means lots of seams all the way around but it didn't actually make much difference when sewing the binding to the quilt and I love how the binding looks :)

It's so quick you could easily make one in time for a last minute christmas gift or maybe it would finish off a gorgeous Valentine's Day table (which is just around the corner ha ha !) or using just one heart would make a really cute pillow or cushion !

The Jelly Glazed Table Runner is a free Fat Quarter Shop quilt along and there's a video tutorial too - check out the Fat Quarter Shop's Jolly Jabber blog for all the information and have a look at the other yummy table runners made using this pattern!

I'll be back soon with a plan for more making in 2020 - wow another century - wonder what it will bring !!  I know there's a pink pig somewhere in my near future :)

  1. Hi Leanne! We haven't heard from you for a while! But I see you're still following Fat Quarter Shop activities. My friend, Paige (QuiltedBlooms) also made the Jelly Glazed Heart project. I'm not one who likes hearts on my quilts, but I can sure admire what you've done, and the lovely fabrics you used. Outside of quiltmaking, I hope you're doing well!


thanks so much for visiting and leaving a comment ♥
