    Quilts?

    Pajamas?

    Or ... do you prefer not use flannels at all?

    What about brushed cottons (such as Moda offers)?

    I used it for the backing on my first quilt for my son, so that it was soft for him. I dont think I would use it other than that though.

    I often use flannel for the back when making baby quilts. I love the softness.

    I also use them for baby quilts, so soft for the newborn.

    I have backed several quilts with flannel both baby and full size bed quilts. All the T-Shirt quilts I have made I also backed in flannel. Used for both warmth and softness and I just like flannel.

    I have also used flannel in applique pieces and for background fabric on throw pillows.

    I have customers who use them to make baby blankets and then donate they to the local hospital for NCIU or other baby/children hospitals.

    I use them to back quilts for children and of course flannel is great for rag quilts.

    I have actually bought some and made receiving blankets for friends. I like to make them bigger then the ones you buy. I just flip the edges each twice and do a running stitch done tehm all! Everyone seems to like them!
