    I usually only use cotton. I make one for each new baby at church. Do a lot of 4 or 9 patches alternated with a print.

    all of them! I use a variety of fabrics for the backings. tops are cotton or flannel. I've added minky pieces in stacked coin quilts for the texture. If i want a traditional style it will be cotton top and bottom. other times i piece a flannel top and pair it with fleece or minky for the back. also use all flannel for some, some rag-stlye, some not.

    Usually 100% cotton, front and back; but I have used Minky for the backing...

    Of the one's I've made, and the one I'm currently making, I use mostly 100% cotton on both the front and the back. Sometimes I will include flannel in the top, it just depends on if it fits my color scheme since ALL of my baby quilts are scrap quilts they are usually made from what's in my stash.

    Scrap quilts are my absolute most favorite quilts to make. And I find that with baby quilts I can use up small amounts of scraps that wouldn't fit into a much larger quilt because there wouldn't be enough fabric.

    So far, only cotton but would definitely use flannel if it worked for the color scheme I was using.
