I'm considering a beautiful flannel fabric as the backing for a Christmas quilt. This is Florida, and I would like these quilts to be used a good part of the year, so they can't be to heavy.
I'm worried that if I use this 5 oz. flannel I should forgo the batting in this quilt, and if I do that wont that cause extra wear and tear where the seams in the top -rubbing on the quilt back? I've never used flannel to back a quilt, so any insight would be helpful.
I don't want to worry that because I picked flannel it's thought I went the cheap way, and therefore my quilt wont last so long. :( Please help.
