    My dear mil got me some material at a yard sale. There was a piece of flannel (about 2 yards) and she asked if I could make my nephew (her only grandchild!) a quilt with it. She was thinking a tied one (like you do with fleece) but I don't think it will work with flannel. Any suggestions would be welcome!The little guy lives in minnesota so i want it to be warm too

    My first thought would be a rag quilt:) Keep us posted on what you choose.:)

    I would be afraid the flannel would rip from the ties. That would probably depend on the quality of flannel. The really thin stuff comes apart way too easy.

    I don't think fleece and flannel fabric are interchangeable. I think the fringe made from flannel would not hold up and would raffle alot.

    I would do a simple 9 patch, or add a third color and make a DP9. i often tie flannel quilts, have not had any issues with the ties not holding. if you do a rag quilt, batting could be added to the center for a really warm quilt. Example, 8 in. sq. of flannel with a 6in. sq. of batting for center. Sew "X" thru the square to hold batting in place.
