I have read in other forums that this batting has a right side and a wrong side, but on the packaging there is no guidance as to which is which? Any know or is this true? If there is a right side - does that mean the "up" side as in what faces up toward the quilt top? I haven't used this brand before but have it for two quilts and am getting ready to put the quilts together, so any help would be appreciated.

I use this and have never heard there is a right/wrong side. Both sides look the same to me.

There IS a difference, but I can not remember for the life of me how to tell!

It has something to do with how the fibers are held together and when you sew it you want your needle going in the same direction.

My philosophy is if I need a magnifying glass to be able to even SEE which is which, it really isn't all that vital.

That's an interesting question. I used this batting once and didn't notice a difference.

I am in the middle of a quilting marathon and I always use Warm & Natural. I see a slight difference...one side looks smoother. However, once it's quilted, I cannot tell a difference in appearance or texture. When I fuse pieces together I make sure that I keep the "smooth" side consistant. HTH

Found this on the quilting board off the internet

It is my understanding that you can tell the right from wrong side of batting by taking a close look at the needle punching marks. When the batting is punched it leaves an indentation on one side (the right side) and little "fuzzies" poke out on the other side. Your machine needle will go through the batting easier if you have it poke through the same as when the batting is manufactured.

Then from the batty lady her answer about wrong side and right side of batting :
Yes - there is a right and wrong side to most battings. In the case of a
needlepunched batting the top is the side that the holes are poked. The
back has little bumps or "Slubs and Nubs". On most battings you can feel
the difference - the top will be smooth feeling and the back will have
lumps and bumps or feel not as smooth. It will not ruin your quilt if you
have the batting facing back up to top. I it does make it easier to quilt
if you have the quilt top, batting top facing the back of the top and then
the backing because you will be going the same direction as the needle was
punched through a needlepunched batting.
