WIPW - Tagliatelle con Spinaci

Work In Progress Wednesday for this week is about cooking!

For the
Trinity Green
quilt I have been making Tagliatelle con Spinach, or spinach tagliatelle pasta.
'Rolling out' the dough with a hot iron, and cutting the 'fresh' pasta with a 'pizza' rotary cutter.

No, that is a joke! I have been pressing green cotton fabric, and with rotary cutter and ruler cut long strips. What you can not see in the picture, because I have no photo of it yet, are the small pieces of gold fabric I have been added to the joints of this long 'ribbon'.

Next step is to stitch this to the 'snakes' with green triangles.

You havea lot of ingredients going into this quilt. It will be interesting to see after it is 'cooked'.

feel we are going to see the quilt as a quilt soon not just triangles but a process you have been through

This pasta is packed with fibers, has not one single calorie and is absolutely tasteless, but pretty, yes!

You are right, it is a 'green pasta salad' of a quilt! Decorated with leaf gold, like an expensive piece of chocolate.

It will take a LONG time before it is on the bed, but the flimsy might be completed soon.

Your progress puts my quilt making to shame—at this rate, you'll soon be making the quilt sandwich.

It's bitterly cold and rainy in Tokyo. I can't go out so will stay home and under my mountain of pasta!

This is a fantastic quilt. Can't wait to see the next installment!

Finished cooking the pasta last night, and sprinkled (leaf) gold on every strand. Now for the stitching together of snakes and tagliatelle.
