WIPW - A Dish of Snake Pasta

It is Wednesday and here is my Work In Progress report.

Trinity Green

I began by joining the 'tagliatelle' with some gold.


With an old blade in the rotary cutter I trimmed the paper and fabric off the 'snakes' to leave a 7mm seam allowance.

The sewing machine was fed gold specked spinach tagliatelle and trimmed snakes.

on both sides, until I had five of these siamese reptiles.

There are 28 'snakes' left to go through the same procedure and the confetti party (removing the paper) has not started yet.

  2. Thank you. This work is faster than I had expected, but it might take some time anyway before this is completed.

    1. Many triangles have a little bit of gold print in them so it was nice to add some solid gold fabric in the 'pasta'.
      I wanted to record, for myself, how I put the quilt top together, hence the photos.

  6. Every step takes you just that closer to finishing. Before you know it you will be there. ( don't even think about what it will be like taking that paper off.)

    1. Well, there IS that paper to remove, then hateful sandwich making, and then the quilting.

    1. It was a good way to lengthen the 'pasta'.

    1. This work goes much faster than I had thought, so there might be a flimsy (with paper backing!!!!) in a short time!
