I am finishing a quilt commissioned as a tribute to cient's father from pieces of his shirts. She wants it to be passed down to future generations. She intends for it to be lightly used and thought flannel would be nice feeling on the back, which it would. But I discouraged her from this choice because I was concerned about the longevity of the flannel fabric. I thought it would wear out before the top. I used the stablizer for silk fabric on the pieces of her father's shirts so they would last. They are combined with LQS fabric.
Was I right or wrong in discouraging her about flannel?
