    Great job. Did you piece them on a foundation of some kind? I find that flannels stretch. The only all flannel quilt I have made is one of those rag ones. I do use flannel on the back of baby or Linus quilts.

    I am thinking of making a flannel quilt - any suggestions you can offer?

    BTW - your quilts are beautiful.

    Thank you. They are warm and nice to snuggle in. My favorites here in the North.
    I've never had a problem with flannel, no foundations. Just piecing like you would cotton. Just be sure to prewash.
    I like the weight so I still use batting even if the backing is flannel.

    I love flannel quilts... they're so cuddly and warm.

    I've never had a problem working with flannel, just be a little careful with the iron not to "push" the fabric, and finger press where you can. I've never done a quilt with small pieces in flannel though, always fairly solid chunky designs.

    Thank you everyone! Flannels are easy to work with, just careful not to stretch!
    The camera has the colors a little off. The 2nd quilt is plum & green. Same colors are in the leafs fabric. I wish camera's wouldn't change the colors!!

    Love your flannels. When I first opened the thread up...I thought...oohhh...warm and looked at where you live..no wonder!! I love both of them though. I haven't tried working with flannel yet.

    justquilting ~ I have been wracking my brain for a fairly quick pattern to make a flannel quilt for my aunt. When I saw your crazy quilt I thought, "hey! I have that stackTheDeck book!" so thanks for the inspiration - I'll be starting it tonight. :-)

    Great quilts!! Those are going to be so warm and cozy. I'm just doing a little rag quilt in flannel and I am loving the soft fabric.

    Beautiful. My Grandmother always put flannel on the back of her quilts. I picked up that tradition. Mine always have flannel and I've never had any problems with them either.
