Sweet Dreams! 7 Quilted Bed Throw Patterns

Celebrate the place you sleep by quilting a simple quilted bed throw for your mattress!

If you love your current bedding, but would like to add a handmade touch to your decor, a quilted bed throw can do the trick. Throw quilts are typically smaller than bed-size quilts (twin, full, queen or king), and can also be called lap size blankets. These smaller size quilts are generally quicker to sew and easier to wrangle on your home sewing machine than their bed-size counterparts.

Bed runners are a different type of bed throw. They have a long and skinny shape and are designed to rest on the foot of the mattress, on top of the comforter. In case you are looking to sew a quilted bed throw or bed runner for your home, here are some pretty patterns to get you sewing!
