    I made this bedrunner for my mom for Christmas. Used the pattern out of the book: Bed Runners using Precut Fabrics. This called for one jelly roll of 40 strips. I made it shorter than the 92" finished size because she has a twin bed. (it's shown on my queen). Her's is 72" long. She is such a tiny lady that she could also wrap it around herself as a shawl when she reads in bed. I'm sure her kitty is going to love it too. Lots of fabric left to make a dresser runner, tote, etc. Can't wait to make another.

    I love the colors you used! It really dresses up the bed. Like some of the other ladies on here I had never heard of them before either. Then my cousin asked me if I could make her a very plain simple one that was reversable. I told her I had never heard of them so had to google them to see what she was talking about. I also made her a matching reversable pillow to take the color up to the head of the bed.
    You did a great job :thumbup: I can see doing them seasonal / holiday too. ;)

    Really like those fabrics! I'd forgotten all about bed runners until they started popping up here, I think I see one in my future!
