So it seems that some of you have different experience with Joann’s flannel but I can only share what I’ve experienced. It’s funny but when I was reading my post from yesterday in Feedly, this one came up underneath it … from September 2006 – https://blog.maryquilts.com/2006/09/28/autumn-top-finished/ .
It just so happens that I was sitting under that quilt and flipped the corner over. That is a Joann’s flannel, the quilt has been washed many, many times, and I use it all the time. There is no pilling, no excessive shrinkage, and the quilt is 15 years old! I’m not trying to convince anyone to run out and buy Joann’s flannel but I’m saying I’ve used it on many quilts without any problems. For the most part I do try to buy in person so I can feel the fabric and I buy the Snuggle or Super Snuggle Flannel but I have occasionally bought online.
