In my neck of the woods we call them bed runners.

Yes, that is what they are. I've made a few. They are great.

What's the point of a bed runner? During the winter, I almost always keep an extra cover at the foot of the bed . . . but it can be pulled into service, if needed. It just seems a bit silly, to me, to have a "pretend" extra cover.

I completely understand how in areas with colder weather this wouldn't be useful. I have plans though to make several for these reasons: 1) we have a king but I have no desire or time to make king sized quilts [bucket list too long and I work full time, 2] 2 dogs who like to get up on the end of the bed if you're in there during the day and bed runners are more easily laundered, 3] living in Florida I prefer a solid thinner bed covering with bed runners and pillows to reflect seasons, holidays or the desire to change color scheme. That's my plan now to get going on it!

We call them Toppers. Really just larger Table Runners. I have one on my bed over the Matelasse Coverlet. I also made Shams to match. It just added some color to the Creme Coverlet.
