    "stretched taut"? That's near impossible, not necessary, and could cause problems down the line. Flannel doesn't require anything different than basting a quilt with same fabrics, front and back. Smooth out the wrinkles and baste it using whatever method. Flannel is actually easier to work with for backs (and fronts) due to the natural "cling" with other fabrics.

    I always use Sharon Schamber's "board basting" method. Her videos show her hand-basting, I think, but I always use 505 spray. Never a pleat on the backing. Look it up!

    Did you prewash the flannel?
