How deep are your cuts? They look a couple inches or so...

some are short, around a short inch, others got a bit longer and i m thinking maybe some of the outer ones needs cutting down.

but it def needs sum TLC later as its been washed 3 times and are not exactly feeling very soft.....

I'm no expert, however I've made three denim/cotten rag quilts and I clipped probably no more than 1/2 inch and they have frayed nicely. 100% cotton fabric, right?

Also, I looked at your pictures again and it reminded me... I clipped all the way to the stitching being very careful not to clip the stitching. I made really close together cuts, too; probably not more than 1/4 inch apart. Hope this helps...

you are right, flannel should fray nicely! There are a lot of people on this site with more experience than I have, so I'm sure you will get good advice.

After making several of those I find that cheap flannel (from Walmart or similar) frays easier than expensive flannel from your LQS. The down side is that it also shrinks more.

I understand that you have washed it several time but have you dried it in a dryer?
