    I think that type of quilt is usually tied, rather than quilted. The stretch of the double-knit would make machine quilting especially difficult. It might work to hand quilt using the "big stitch" method.

    My husbands grandmother quilted them back in the 70's, made them just like a regular quilt. She hand quilted, they are almost indestuctable.lol

    Someone on this board made a BEAUTIFUL one. I specifically asked about the quilting and she told me it was easy to quilt.

    Here's the link for the one she did:

    My mom made one all by hand in the 1970's. It weighs a TON! It is the warmest thing ever. Not the prettiest, though.

    My grandmother did them and she hand quilted. My mother made several tops and I hand quilted those... surprisingly, it wasn't that bad..

    We had one gifted to us and it was just the top...loved it and finally wore it out...wish I had another one...it lasted for a long time and through many washings...so easy to care for...great while the kids were growing up.

    My mom made a patchwork one for my son. She tied it. He used it until it was literally in shreds and still, he had a hard time parting with it. We had to have a ceremony for it, buried it in a small trash can with an American flag and took pictures.
