I'm new to quilting and have just completed my first flannel quilt top. On the advise of my LQS I didn't wash the fabric first. I intend to use flannel for the backing as well but am unsure what will happen to the batting once the quilt is washed and shrinks considerably. Will I end up with a lumpy mess? Please help.
I know, I know....wash fabrics first, but it's too late for this one.
