    Starch/iron Flannel for Runners??????

    Okay, great quilters here, I am going to used cotton flannel to make runners for Christmas presents. My question is, if I have already washed the flannel, is ironed and starched the best way to prepare the fabric? I am pretty sure that is the way that I need to go but need your help. Thank you for your ideas.

    I wash, starch, and iron my flannel before cutting for quilts and projects.
    I love my life!

    Wash, starch and iron would be what I would do too.

    I agree with the above. I always wash only my flannel.
