I'm still noodling the idea of making my dad a lap quilt. He has poor circulation in his feet so I want the material to be super warm and soft.

Is it possible to quilt with flannel? If so, is there a specific weight of fabric that I should use?

I haven't actually made a quilt with flannel but I have backed several of them with it and does great.  It also makes for a cozy, comfy quilt.

I hadn't thought about using if for just the backing. Definite possibility there.

Thanks for the suggestion SimplySandy! Smiley

I make a lot of flannel quilts.  Nothing too hard about them but you do have to remember to prewash well, the shrinkage on some of them is amazing.  Some of them stretch quilte a bit too so just watch your pulling as you sew.
