    I have only made rag quilts with flannel. Does anyone make them out of just plain cotton? Do they look as nice?

    Lots of people do. I prefer flannel, but that is just me.

    Plain cotton doesn't rag as nicely.

    I have used cotton on the top and bottom, but used flannel as batting to help the seams rag better.

    I agree, and I just like the cuddly flannel.

    I use both homespun and flannel in mine. I'm working on one as we speak/type!
