Sewing Through Summer: The Benefits of Bed Runners

If you’ve ever been to a hotel and loved the look of the beds you’ll love this summer inspiration idea. When you’re short on time or you want to get the aesthetics of a beautiful quilt without the weight of it for summer then a bed runner is the way to go. Bed runners are a perfect summer project because when the weather is warm no one really wants all that fabric that comes with quilting. Plus, with bed runners you can change the look of a room without constantly changing the quilts. With that in mind, here are some great tips for sewing bed runners through the summer months:


The best thing about bed runners is the convenience that they bring. You can use them to change the entire look of a room. Whether you’re decorating the cabin bedrooms, guest room, or you just want to use a lightweight blanket on your bed but want a detailed bed runner to add dimension to the room, bed runners are a fun project for summer.

  • Pick bright fabrics and patterns you can match to simple quilts
  • Bold patterns add a fun element for summer projects
  • You can select summer themed patterns like beach, waves, or other summer activities
  • Embellishments are also a fun way to add a little something extra to a bed runner

Below you’ll find a link to a free sunglasses embellishment you can add from Kimberbell Designs. Whatever you’re inspired to do this summer, it’s always a great idea to take a little time and enjoy your hobbies!
