    I made a bedrunner when bedrunners weren't cool. Actually it was a long, narrow practice quilt and I tied it. So I put it at the bottom of my bed. That's been several years ago.

    This is why I have an electric blanket. I can't stand getting into a cold bed. I turn it on about an hour before I go to bed and tootsies are nice and toasty.

To put a full quilt on our bed with the comforter is to much and by itself is not enough. Love my comforter. LOL

    LOL, well, I have had electric blankets and electric mattress pad but didn't really like either on. I really think for us the small quilt/bed runner will fit the bill. I think they will be about the size of a small throw.

    God has a plan and it is a good plan.

    Too hot for quilts most of the year but runners are a great trim and you can make several for different seasons or to go with other bedding. We generally have a very light weight duvet with a plain cream, mushroom or ivory cover so they would really brighten up a dull bed.

    I plan on doing either an Irish chain or a whole cloth quilt for my bed. I also plan on doing a bed runner for that bed. It is simply for decoration.

    I just plan on making mine as wide as the quilt and as long as I want it.
