    Now that Christmas is behind us, I wanted to make one of those quilts that fit over just a part of the bed. I think they are called bed scarfs or something like that. Anyway, does anyone know what they are called and where I could find a pattern? ( hopefully free, but if not, ok). I suppose I could just take a bed quilt pattern and cut it in fourths, but I remember seeing some really pretty ones, just can't remember where.
    Thanks in advance, you all are such neat ladies ( and gentlemen) and always have the answers whenever anyone needs help.

    I have heard them called "bed runners" but I don't know the real name.

    I keep a twin size quilt (turned sideways) across the foot of our king size bed. Keeps the toes toasty.

    They are called Bed Runners and I bought the book and am working on one right now. You can order it at Clotilde.com, its by Kathy Brown. Its for using precut fabrics but you can also cut your own. Very easy ones and colored photos and instructions.

    Bed Runners sounds like what I heard also. But another use might be to cover the pillows when the quilt doesn't reach that far.

    They look like long table runners don't they? I was thinking you could just add some length to one of those patterns!

    Thanks everyone for all your help. I checked out the book about bed runners and found it on Amazon for $4.46 plus shipping. I can't wait to get started!

    Are bed runners like over sized table runners?

    Funny, daughter in Iowa just told me today she wanted to use the tablerunner I sent her for Christmas as a bed runner. I told her to send me the measurements and I will try to get something made up that truly goes on the bed as a runner. I think it is a neato idea for those who use a duvet.

    I like these bed runners very much and have thought about making one for our king bed. I just might take the tube quilt blocks I made today and add to them and make a runner for the bed. My DH's toes are always too warm at night and he has his feet sticking out, but mine are always cold...LOL. Besides, I think it would add some color to our plain cream colored matlasse bedspread.

    Thanks, garysgal, for asking the question :)

    That'll work. At night simply fold HIS side of it over to YOUR side of the bed and your feet will be warmer that way.

    You're welcome! I think they are a great idea, and it would be a nice change from making full size quilts.

    That's exactly what he does...throws his covers over on my side :)
