There are three really good reasons why I love to work with flannel. It's easier to free motion quilt on flannel than other fabrics. I can usually hit a sale and stock up on it. Flannel is so soft and and not just for babies. I made my husband a flannel quilt and my son absconded with it. Whenever my son hears his father asking about his quilt, my son puts his finger to his lips to signal to me to stay quiet. I know he hid it in his room. I'm not going to rat him out but I have loose plans to make another one just like the first one. That will keep the peace.
