Default Batting-Right Side, Wrong side

I just rolled out some batting I bought by the yard. Almost positive it is Warm & White. Assuming that the side folded to the outside of the bolt is the right side, same as fabric. Also, the right side is smoother. The wrong side of this batting is extremely pilled (mini cotton balls.) I'm afraid it is going to give me trouble. Should the right side (smoother side) go against the quilt top with the pills toward the back? I'm not sure which way will pull (beard) more batting through, needle going down and pushing pills to the back, or needle coming back up and pulling pills to the top. Hope you understand my question. Thanks for all help.

If you can tell which side the scrim is on, typically the scrim side should be against the backing.

There was a post recently on the board but I can't seem to find it. I have always used Hobbs 80/20 and never noticed that there was a difference between top and bottom but I think someone mention there is with W&N.

I always remember the rule as "bump up the front." Bumpy side up.

I searched on the keyword "batting" but couldn't find the answer to this question. I'm sure it's been asked before in different ways. Thank for your reply.

Thank you. That's a great graphic. I seem to remember that it seems backwards to me and this seems backwards to me so I think I can remember it.
