    Hobby Lobby has lots of flannel, even solid colors. The Dollar stores carry the infants receiving blankets that are flannel and that would work as well. Look for sheet blankets too.

    I made one rag baby quilt with flannel, never again, too much work trying to get it to shed the fuzz. And it will shed fuzz every time it is washed, I suppose, so I didn't give it away.

    I've been collecting flannel scraps for about six months. Whenever I go into a fabric store, I check the remnant bin. I've collected enough now for the quilt I want to make. If you can be patient, you might be able to collect enough over time. Also, fabric.com has quite a bit of flannel. If you do a search for "flannel fabric" or "fabric flannel" you might find some online. I've had good results shopping online with jofabric.com (might be jofabricS.com); thousandsofbolts.com; and fabric.com. There are many others. Those are just the ones that come to mind. And some of the people on this board might pony up too!

    the only problem with JoAnn's is the quality varies... i just finished a flannel cancer quilt, and the variations really became a problem.... some of them came from JoAnn's.... it was the Moda and other higher-end brands that held their shape.... WITH pre-washing!!!! so, if you spend just a little more, you might enjoy making the quilt a whole lot more!!! and wrestle less with shifting fabrics.... i still stand by fabric.com..... they're awesome, and they ship QUICKLY!!! ....and, you can match colors by fabric lines... enjoy!!!

    Search online for quilt shops up North... I found wonderful flannels online in Nebraska and Michigan quilt shops. But recently while on a retreat in Milford, TX, I visited a friend that has a quilt shop in Italy, TX. She had some great floral flannels from Moda Fabrics.... Here is her contact:

    Suzie is a nice lady, tell her Jan in Plano said, "hello." She also sends you a free pattern with every shipment.

    Someone recommended that you look for cheap flannel shirts, etc to get material for a rag quilt. I wouldn't if I were you. I mixed flannel from WalMart and flannel from a quilt store for a rag quilt that I wanted to give to a cousin. When it was washed you could tell which was cheap and which was the better fabric. Needless to say, I never gave it as a gift. It went into one of those donation boxes at a church. A very expensive donation.

    I'm Terry from Your California Fabric Connection and I do have a nice selection of flannels available. If you'd like to email me, I can forward some photos of what I have. I get mill ends, so my inventory is always changing.

    Try GlacierQuilts.com. They are in Kalispell, MT. She will coordinate for you, pack it up nice and ship it right away. I got Tons of Flannel from her. Her name is Suzie, and I think she is a doll. Now all I have to do is get to Montana to meet her.

    Another thought. Go to Goodwill or other thrift stores in your area and look at men's flannel shirts. A lot of them are in really good condition and you can get a lot of fabric out of the back, front (below the pockets (unless you want to use the pockets for an embellishment), and the sleeves. It's especially good when they have their "sale days.' I.e., all of their blue tags ($3.00) items are on sale for $1. Look for the XXXLs!

    JoAnn Fabric Etc store usually have a larger selection than the regular JoAnn stores. Also try EBAY. I have found nice hard to find fabrics there. If you can find a Walmart with a full fabric dept, ask the manager if she can order some fannel. The manager at our Perry Georgia Walmart was able to order some for me about 2 yrs ago.
