I have never used flannel. Am I correct in that patterns with larger pieces are more suitable due to the bulk?


I have a hankering to make a flannel blankie for my cousin's cottage.

There is a great Flannel Quilt Pattern Book out there by Lynette Jensen called "Oh Sew Cozy Flannel Quilts". It is an awesome book and has great (mostly) easy patterns for flannel. There are 25 projects in the book.  I have made many flannel quilts, mostly for my grandchildren and children, they love to snuggle up in them, also flannel pillowcases out the ying yang!! lol   Once you sew with flannel it becomes addictive.  I do take extra time with some of my flannel projects and zig zag the seams for extra protection. Have fun with your project!!

Shannon, I did a flannel quilt for my DH.  It's on my page.  I really didn't have much problem with fraying.  Some frayed more than others.  Some not at all.  I think the quality of flannel they have now, is a much better grade than what used to be available.

I don't know the problem is bulk--I think it's because flannel is less tightly woven so small pieces are more likely to end up frayed. I have successfully used squares cut 2".
