We visited my parents this weekend. It was a wonderful few days with family and one of the highlights was getting our feet in the sand. My favorite time to go to the beach is in the fall; the water is still warm from summer, it isn't crowded, and you aren't sweltering with the last season's heat.
I had a jelly roll of Whimsy fabric and knew when I saw the colors that it would be perfect for Gigi (my grandmother) so I made her one...so easy! Because a jelly roll easily gives you two table runners, I made one for my mom too.
Gigi's table runner was made with a subway tile style pattern where I staggered the seams. My mom's was a simple strip design.
The finished product on my Mom's table.
The jelly roll (these are my favorite items right now...there are so many quick projects that you can make with a jelly roll) came from Stephanie of Quilting Whimsy. Not only does she sell fabric, jelly rolls, and patterns, but she also sells her own table runners! Now that I make these myself (albeit very simplistic designs...hers are true QUILTS), I will tell you, her prices are amazing!!! Her store is organized into product size, which is very helpful! On top of jelly rolls, she also has charm packs, honey buns, and layer cakes. Go give her a visit!
