Ohhhhhh I just received my fabric from CT! It is the Mirage, Flannel, red. It feels amazing! Now, my question is.....should I wash this before I use it for backing??? How many times should i wash it??? Hot or cold water???? I dont usually wash my fabrics before I make my quilts. But I know flannel shrinks some/alot. I dont know. Anyone use Connecting Threads flannel yet? Any help would greatly be apprectiated.
