    i agree, definitely pre-wash! you can use flannel as the batting too. it's great stuff
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.

    Pre-washed flannel is great for backings, but I would shy away from using it for the binding. I've heard it isn't as strong as regular 100% cotton.
    To quilt or not to quilt...now what was the question?

    I've used flannel as a backing. Makes a nice warm snuggly quilt
