I've read through most of the entries on this already, but just getting more and more confused.
We live in the desert. The reason I'm making this king sized quilt is because my dh requested one for our bed to replace the down comforter for summer. I already ordered king sized Warm and Natural, but from what I can glean, this may be too warm for my purposes, and I didn't realize that it would shrink.
What would you recommend? We want it light, and I don't really want a lot of shrinkage. I see talk of flannel as an alternative. Would I just go and buy 6 yards or so of flannel, whip it together and use it?
