    Ok, don't forget I'm new to quilting and prone to asking questions with obvious answers,sooo, if I piece a quilt top with 8inch flannel squares,could I use a flannel backing? And would I need to use batting? Also, how would I bind it? I have made a rag quilt with 3 layers of flannel. I prewashed all fabric. Thanks for any help!!

    you say you have made a rag quilt. Then the batting and backing should already be there. Edges are usually clipped so doent require binding. Do I understand your question correctly

    The rag quilt is another quilt,just wanted to say I have worked with flannel a little bit. I want to make a regular pieced quilt out of flannel.

    You wouldn't have to use a batting, if you think the 2 layers will be warm enough. Some will just use a piece of flannel for the batting too, if they think that traditional batting may make it to warm :D:D:D

    Hi!
    I also am new. Just made a rag quilt for DGD and it turned out cute. I first cut out all my blocks. I made them 6 inches square.
    I cut the batting 5 inch square. Then I sewed all three pieces together; front, batting and back with a 1" seam allowance. Then I sewed an "X" in the middle of the blocks to quilt them. I then sewed the rows, then sewed the rows together and clipped with rag quilt shears. Attached (hopefully) is a picture. I have never sewn anything in my life and am quite proude of this. I got on You Tube and saw a wonderful video form Minnesota Quilts on how to mak a tube pillowcase. So I made that to match the quilt.

    I made a flannel quilt and I used flannel for the top and back and then I put a piece of flannel in the middle and quilted it. I then used flannel for the binding. It turned out really nice.
