    I agree also and on some fabrics, the back looked to me to be prettier than the front...I used the back!

    Oh goodness! You all are such great help! Thank you! It's true, the bella solid is the same on both sides, so you don't have to worry about what side you use! Hope this helps clarify. You all have a great week!!

    I agree with the others that it probably won't matter.

    For future quilts, if you want to pick a side and stick with it, mark what you want to be the backside with chalk pencil BEFORE you cut it. You will have to keep in mind what size you are cutting and draw lines close enough that you get a little of the chalk on each piece. For instance, if you are cutting strips, sewing them, then recutting, you only need to mark one end. I do this with batiks and it makes it much easier than examining each piece as I come to it.
