    I plan to make a few by adjusting the size of a table runner...some of them are wide enough for a queen, just need to make the blocks bigger! It's on my someday list!

    This site gives you a good picture of a bed runner and the measurements based on the mattress size.

    You can create something on your own or use a favorite table runner pattern.

    ANY pattern works, just measure for the size you need and adjust the number of blocks...I make them all the time. I have used the tumbler, friendship star, log cabin, coin.

    Earlier this year I was in a hotel for a few days and took sewing with me. It was my wedding ring quilt I was making and placed the section across the base as a bed runner. Looked great. Any pattern for a double/ king/ queen quilt will make a runner. Take about a third or quarter of the pattern and then bind all around etc.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    I like bed runners, gives the look of a folded quilt, minus the work involved.

    There is a cheap e-book on e-patters too.

    I agree any table runner pattern just made bigger would work. Or if you have a favorite block pattern just repeat that a few times and add a border around it and viola you have your own personalized bed runner.
