Here is my latest slacker quilted throw, and my first one that I'm keeping!  Grin

Everything except for the binding is from my stash; the batting was left over from a throw I made my friends, the blues were from quite a few different sources, and the backing was an old blue sheet someone gave me.  I'm very lazy about quilts, I like large blocks and have not bothered to get a quilting foot.  However, my bad stitching kind of helps to give it that crinkly quality I like, so I just tell myself it's a "feature".  Wink

It's by far not a fancy quilt, but it's nice for snuggling on the couch under!

That's my kind of quilt Smiley. I love how simple it is.

I'm glad I'm not the only person who likes to make quilts, but also wants to be lazy about it. Cheesy I have a quilting foot, but I've never used it (I will eventually though. I own one, I might as well use it. Tongue) Either way, I love your throw. But I have a question. How do you get the fun quilting lines with using a quilting foot? I've tried doing that with my sewing machine and it never looks good.

Well, not all of my lines are perfect.  Where the lines meet, there are a lot of places where the fabric is a bit puckered, but that kind of just increases the crinkliness.  I think it helps that I pinned the quilt a lot before I started.

I love it too! I'm also very fond of random quilting lines, AND I'm also a big fan of lazy shortcuts! Who said quilting had to be perfect??! Well done!
