This was the first quilt I ever made. Why the teacher had us working on 3" flannel squares...I did learn a lot. Anyway, this quilt is used daily by my granddaughter. It goes between her top sheet and her bed covering (not something I made). It has been washed a gazillion times. It has warm and natural batting and a flannel backing. I just looked at it again last time we were there and it is holding up wonderfully.
