    Default Re: Flannel-backed quilt

    I use flannel alot, and prewash it. My tops are always all cotton and not prewashed bc I use alot of charm packs. No problem with them shrinking differently. I think a flannel backed quilt feels heavier weight wise if that is a concern. I live where it is cold so I appreciate the extra weight. I have a few that I backed with flannel blankets I bought years ago at an army navy surplus store and they are pretty heavy but my favorites.

    Hi and another one that uses flannel as quilt backs. When I do, I don't generally use batting. If you want a lighter weight,"summer quilt" just use the flannel. I do however pre-wash flannel. A good source for flannel is to watch for sales on flannel sheets, I have gotten some really good deals on cuddle duds sheet sets at Kohls clearance. I pre-wash the sheets too.
