    I don't know if you all have figured this out....but I just figured it out for myself! :mrgreen: I am making a quilt that has some pieces that are white with whiter polkadots. Once cut it was impossible to tell which side is the "right side". Totally by accident :wink: I discovered if I lay the piece on the dark cutting mat and flip back and forth, it's immediately evident which is the right side!!!!

    Hope this helps you all! :mrgreen:

    I saw another hint that if you lay it on your leg it will be obvious too. I don't know why this works but it does!!

    Didn't know about placing it on a darker background, but I usually put a pin at the top of my blocks in the seam allowance, so I know which is the right side, and the top, too! :D

    What if it is a dark fabric like navy or black? I have the problem of figuring out which side is the right side more than the white ones!
