umm....I have not had the best of luck at JoAnns....seems like a lot of their flannel is thinner and more coarsely woven. I did buy some of the flannel their for a quilt backing on a flannel throw that had quilt shop flannel on the top. I washed the JoAnn's fabric prior to using it and am glad I did....it shrank about 4 inches. I used it anyway...it does feel thinner and is already starting to pill. So, I usually use the quilt shop flannel for quilts I hope will last a while. The flannel lap quilts where all made using up scraps from previous flannel quilts and I am ok with the cheaper flannel from JoAnn's for those. I am glad I used the more expensive flannel however from the quilt shop on the king sized flannel quilt I made for my nephew....cost a lot more....but I liked the quality.
