I press open , and also use a seam allowance bigger than 1/4 inch. Flannel is more loosely woven .. so that why the bigger seam allowance. At minimum I use 3/8 ... sometimes as large as 1/2 depending on the flannel.
And as Dunster said .. prewash/dry. Shrinkage is so much more than regular quilting cotton.
