    I want to find a pattern for a quilted toe warmer. It is a small quilt 30" wide and the length of the width of the bed. I live in the S and don't need a quilt all summer-even with air. This just goes at the foot of the bed to add a decorative touch and keep your toes warm! I know I can adapt a quilt, but would like a pattern for one. I googled it and didn't find any. Can anyone help me?

    If memory serves me right it was Kayewood who "started" the rage about the little strip quilt that was placed at the bottom of the bed covers. If you have a favourite block just make enough to cover the space you want it....and go for it.

    Am I the only one who pictured a little mitten to go over my toe? I do think those runners are pretty though.

    I was thinking of a lap type quilt with a pocket for the footies on the back of it.

    Sort of a qwillow type thing.

    I think one could take a table runner pattern and just make it longer.

    Kaye calls them 'Quarter Quilts'

    I think these are also called bed runners. I found several -- including this free one:

    My first thought when I saw the posting was all the fur babies mentioned on here. My pom likes to lay at my feet when I'm sewing, although he doesn't help press the pedal (thank goodness!). Of course, if I'm not at the machine and he's at my feet, he lays all over them...nice, furry feet warmer. lol

    Haha, I was picturing a little mitten to go over my big toe for when I was sewing at the machine on a cold floor!

    I recently purchased the book, Bed Runners: Using Precut Fabrics, published by House of White Birches. It has ten different patterns, using jelly rolls, layer cakes, fat quarters, etc, and they are beautiful. I don't remember where I bought it...somewhere online. It may be of interest to you!

    This is what I was thinking as well....then put some sashings and a couple of borders around it.....
    Make sure you post a pic when you decide and make it - we LOVE pics!

    When I first saw them online, I thought they were made for one's beloved pet sleeping at the foot of the bed. What was I thinking???

    Yes, I do make my bed every morning and this will be so much easier than rescuing my king quilt from the floor!

    Thanks to all who have given me wonderful ideas. This board never fails to amaze me!
