    question on W & N

    I recently read there was a wrong and right side to W & N. I did a teal and black quilt and it has some
    W & N popping out the top. It looks pretty bad so will use it in the motor home. Maybe it is the needle that came with the Sweet 16? I dunno. Only did the one quilt on it so far.
    I have a queen size sandwiched and ready to quilt. All pin basted. BUT the waffle side is towards the top of the quilt and the smooth side is to the backing. It also has a lot of black in it. I have unpinned it so I can try gluing it. So which side goes to the front/top of the quilt? Smooth or waffled?
    Thanks for your help, again. You guys are great!

    I believe the right side is the side with the flecks- from plants ect. Hope this helps

    The waffled side has the most flecks.
    So that faces the top of the quilt and smooth side faces the backing?
    Sorry for dumb questions.

    Here is a picture that I got from an APQS website that shows the right and wrong sides. http://forum.apqs.com/index.php?/top...-natural-batt/

    I am so glad you asked that question. I made a quilt sandwich a couple of days ago and wondered if I had the batting placed correctly. Thank goodness, I did because I am about half way finished with the quilting. Thanks to those who responded, I'll know right side of my batting.

    I find the easiest way to remember is "Bump is up" The bumpy side of W&N should be facing up.

    I didn't know there was a right/wrong side....does it really matter? I've used W&N for years and never paid attention to which way it was going in and don't recall any problems with bearding.

    Wow, I also didn't know there was a right and a wrong side. I have never noticed any problem. Maybe I just haven't looked? Never even thought of a bumpy side. Will look harder next time!

    when life gets you down go and talk with a little kid. They will help you work out even the worst problems with their simple logic.
