If I have to turn on extra lights and turn the fabric more than 3 times to decide if it's the "right" side, i quit worrying. BUT, if I am making a quilt for a quilt show or competition, I work harder at using the "right" side.

I never saw painted on white on white. I usually use Moda or Henry Glass, Northcot. The cheaper white on whites do look painted on. I never use them.

I haven't bought any white on white in so many years - I just don't remember.

I seem to be in the majority here. I really love white-on-white fabrics and use them as backgrounds and as a base for dyeing fabric. The white paint resists the dye. I love the look of a dyed background overlaid with a white pattern. I've made two Chinese coin quilts using only white-on-whites for the coins. I bordered one with four different black-and-white prints. After quilting and binding, I dyed the entire quilt in the washing machine. It is so cool the way the different pieces picked up the dye. Here's one: https://scontent-lga1-1.xx.fbcdn.net...78&oe=56669C3B
