I used one of my favorite battings: Warm and White Cotton Batting by The Warm Company. My other favorite is Warm and Natural by The Warm Company, which I use if the fabric I’m using isn’t a tone of white. I use The Warm Company batting exclusively and use it by the roll!

  1. Could these colors scale up to make a throw size of the quilt? How would the ratio of each go to accomplish the same ombre/rainbow effect?

    1. Hi Tori, Thanks for your question! The pattern has instructions for various sizes, including throw. For rainbow version shown on cover, I used (1) 10″ x 12″ fabric piece for the segments and
      (1) 8″ x 14″ fabric piece for the rind in each Triangle Slice Block. In the pattern I have a diagram for what’s included in 1 Triangle Slice Block. Many thanks again, Sheri
