Default How do you know the right side of batting

I was wondering how to tell what is the right side of bats. Which side should be towards the top of the quilt. I never knew there was a right side to batting.

Not all batting has a "right side". If it's needle punched, the side where the holes are sinking into the batting is up. For scrim batts, the scrim goes facing down. W&N is the easiest to tell because the side with the seeds in it goes up. Resin bonded batts like Hobbs don't have a right side.

Make it easy on yourself, use a batting that doesn't have a right or wrong side.

My Warm and Natural has seeds on one side. I do not really pay attention to which way it faces unless the back is very light.

I agree with Peckish.

I go to the site for the company that makes the batting and look it up. If there is a right & wrong side, they will tell you there.

I'm not too concerned with right or wrong sides.

I've been quilting a long time and I just recently discovered that batting has and up and down side! Here's a good article:
