Kathy Brown has this unique ability to get a quilter to stop and take notice...
Bed Runners are ideal. They are quick, keep your feet warm, look great on any bed, even as an accent with a full bed quilt.... I have made 3 of them and I have shared this with my Quilting Bee and purchased books for all of them...Sew far here in Canada, bed runners are the thing to make for this Christmas. One may be coming your way... a book silly not a bed runner..That you will have to do yourself..but she makes them really easy to make..her instructions are very good..
I give her an a+...Strip Quilting Projects: Quick Strip Quilting from the Pbs-TV Series Strip Quilting

At our quilting group, each of us made a bed runner from this book. It took less than 1 afternoon, excluding the quilting portion, and was very easy. I actually decided to make more squares, and make a bed quilt from mine. It turned out lovely, and I plan to make more...definitely would buy again!

I have been wanting to make bed runners for a couple beds in my guest rooms...so this was the perfect book. It has some great patterns and good ideas. I love the fact it gives you the information for all size beds for each quilt.

This book represents another instance in my life where I ask myself, "Why didn't I think of that?!" Well, the up-side is, Kathy Brown did it for me! I love this concept because my feet are always cold when the rest of me is not; a folded up quilt or blanket is too hot. So, with a bed runner I can go from too cold, or too hot, to just right. I love this book. Thank you, Mrs. Brown!

This book allows a beginner a starting point with projects that are not overwhelming. I'm considering making runners as gifts. I can actually get several runners done, including quilting (something I find daunting and pay a professional long-arm quilter to do) lickety-split! I also think the price is a bargain. I've spent more on a pattern for one quilt than I did for this entire book of ten.

I adore pre-cut fabric. Mostly because all the color and pattern selections are furnished but having the cutting already done is a time saver too. However, it's not necessary to use pre-cuts; Brown discusses how we can use our stash or buy yardage instead.

The ten runners in this book are declared to be makeable in a weekend and I agree. Of course, that's ALL I'll be doing on the weekend, but I like it when my husband cooks...take out!

In the introduction it is explained how we can customize the size of each runner to fit our beds. Each runner specifies the materials needed and project instructions. All patterns are stated to be for beginners. A companion book detailing basic quilting techniques, tools, and supplies may be necessary as they are not included in this book. I recommend The Quilter's Bible as a great resource for beginners and experienced quilters alike.

I recommend this book.

I actually purchased this book a few years back from my quilt shop where I took a class to make one of the runners featured inside it. The runner turned out cuter than I pictured and was super easy to make. I then decided to sell the book as I just didn't think I would make anything else pictured in it. WRONG! I found myself looking for a particular quilt style, and while browsing on line I happened upon this little book again. Any of the bed runners can be made into a larger/bed size quilt quite simply. So I "re-bought" the book, and this time it has a permanent position in my quilt library!

This has the information I need as a new sewer to make a bed warmer for my husband. It will help to keep his feet warm in the winter. Love the idea of using precut fabrics. I will be starting this great project right after the holidays.
