    I usually only use cotton. I make one for each new baby at church. Do a lot of 4 or 9 patches alternated with a print.

    all of them! I use a variety of fabrics for the backings. tops are cotton or flannel. I've added minky pieces in stacked coin quilts for the texture. If i want a traditional style it will be cotton top and bottom. other times i piece a flannel top and pair it with fleece or minky for the back. also use all flannel for some, some rag-stlye, some not.

    Of the one's I've made, and the one I'm currently making, I use mostly 100% cotton on both the front and the back. Sometimes I will include flannel in the top, it just depends on if it fits my color scheme since ALL of my baby quilts are scrap quilts they are usually made from what's in my stash.

    Scrap quilts are my absolute most favorite quilts to make. And I find that with baby quilts I can use up small amounts of scraps that wouldn't fit into a much larger quilt because there wouldn't be enough fabric.

    So far, only cotton but would definitely use flannel if it worked for the color scheme I was using.

    Cotton, with either cotton or flannel as a backing. Flannels make great rag quilts. My daughter just made one for a new baby and it came out beautiful!!

    It depends on where the baby lives. If they only get mild winters I usually use cotton. I use minky on the back of some.

    I like cottons for the front of the quilt and flannel for the back of the quilt. Personally, I think the Minky is hard to quilt with, but it does make a cozy backing.

    I use whatever strikes my fancy when I am selecting fabric for one. I rarely use a pattern for these so I first pick the fabric and then the desighn. It is yours to make so use what you want.

    All of the above -- like Minky on the back in the winter. Do a lot of flannel.

    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Cotton on the front. Flannel on the back. No batting. For baby and charity quilts both.
