Jelly Roll Hearts Table Runner


Hi! This is Kristina Brinkerhoff from Center Street Quilts and I’m excited to share a Valentine’s Day project with you today: Jelly Roll Hearts Table Runner! I enjoy working on holiday projects, but it’s often hard for me to start and finish a whole quilt before the intended holiday arrives. That’s why I absolutely love smaller holiday projects like table runners! This Jelly Roll Hearts Table Runner goes together so quickly that you’ll have no problem finishing it before Valentine’s Day. And make sure you read through to the very end to find out how you can win some of the fun Sweetwater Project Red fabric that I used to make my table runner!

This table runner finishes at 62″ x 14″.


1 Jelly Roll {Project Red by Sweetwater}
2/3 yard background fabric
1 yard backing fabric
1/3 yard binding fabric

Before you begin:

  • Read through the entire tutorial
  • Width of Fabric is abbreviated as WOF and is assumed to be 42″
  • Seams are 1/4″ throughout.

Cutting Instructions:

Choose seven (7) jelly roll strips (2.5″ x WOF) for the hearts.

  • Subcut (5) of the jelly roll strips into (4) 2.5″ x 10.5″ pieces each, for a total of (20) 2.5″ x 10.5″ pieces.
  • Subcut the remaining (2) jelly roll strips into (10) 2.5″ x 5.5″ pieces total.

Choose one jelly roll strip for the cornerstones of the sashing.

  • Subcut the cornerstone jelly roll strip into (12) 2.5″ x 2.5″ squares.

From the background fabric, cut (2) 5.5″ x WOF strips.

  • Subcut into (10) 5.5″ x 5.5″ squares.
  • From the remaining fabric, cut (20) 2.5″ x 2.5″ squares.

From the background fabric, cut (4) 2.5″ x WOF strips for the sashing. (Note: if you’d like a scrappy sashing, you can use jelly roll strips for the sashing instead of using the background fabric).

  • Subcut into (4) 2.5″ x 10.5″ pieces each to yield (16) 2.5″ x 10.5″ sashing pieces.

Cut the binding into (4) 2.5″ x WOF strips.

After cutting, you should end up with the following pieces:

Follow the step-by-step photo tutorial below to complete the Jelly Roll Hearts Tablerunner

You can save the trimmed corner pieces from the heart for another project. The photo below shows those extra pieces.

Cut the 1 yard backing piece into (2) identical 18″ x WOF pieces and sew the two pieces together along the 18″ ends.

Quilt and bind as desired.

This table runner finishes at 62″ x 14″.

The Jelly Roll Hearts Table Runner didn’t even use half of my Sweetwater Project Red jelly roll and I’d love to give away the remaining strips to one of you!! Head over to the Center Street Quilts facebook page HERE to enter to win!

Thanks for following along with my Jelly Roll Hearts Table Runner! It’s a fast and fun pattern that can easily be made longer or shorter to fit your needs. You could even sew just one heart and make it into a pillow cover! If you make your own, please share with me on instagram or facebook by using the hashtag #centerstreetquilts–I’d love to see your creations! Happy Sewing!

    I tried to print the tutorial but unfortunately I cannot as there is no sign for printer although I am on the printing friendly page. Can you please help me? Thank you, Myrto

    • ArtsyOne says:

      Here’s what I did – Try hitting “Control P” – your normal print screen should come up.

    • Hi Myrto, were you able to get it printed yet? As ArtsyOne also commented, you should be able to push the “ctrl” and “P” buttons at the same time and the printer options should pop up. I hope you are able to get it printed out!

      Try using a different browser. I was in firefox, didn’t work either. Went to IE, came up fine. Also comes up in Chrome.

    Love these hearts – I can picture many of them on a baby quilt in pinks or blues or even scrappy fabrics.
