    I made a 5 layer slashed flannel quilt. When I washed it I got tons of lint all over the back(unslashed) of the quilt. My sister said I should have alternated the flannel layers at 90 degrees. Any tips? This is the first time I have tried thisl. I've gone thru 2 lint rollers trying to clean it up. The quilt looks like it's made of old flannel now.

    Are you talking about a rag quilt where you sew 1 inch away from seams and then cut and the flannel ravells ?I made rag quilts and used two layers of flannel with cotton batting in middle and I also had alot of lint but that is because youcut the fibes and you want it to be soft and the more you wash it
    the softer it will become I did Dinosaur rag quilts and the boys and they love them .

    I made one of those quilts. When I had washed it, it looked like a used quilt and I didn't want to give it away.

    If you are talking about the chenille blankets I have seen those. They are sooooo cute and warm.

    Could it just be that you had cheap flannel? I have never heard of turning it 90 degrees?

    To make chenille, you need to cut it on the bias, if you don't, you just get a raggedy look. :D:D:D
