WIPW - Paper Trail

What have I got to report for Work In progress Wednesday?

Well, progress has been made on

Trinity Green
where I have carefully been removing paper from the back of the quilt. There is a paper trail wherever I go!

Yesterday, the one to two year olds were taring paper and wetting it and sticking it onto a board. (and I was cleaning up scraps) I can only imagine this process.

That's a big start to unpicking all the paper. What a shame we're not all close enough to help out.
That would be such fun, not work, then.

margaret said...

fiddly and I should think quite time comsuming removing the papers so wanting to see this great project completed

Queeniepatch said...

Not only toddlers like playing with torn paper, cats do, too! Who is really to be blamed for the paper trail?!

jacaranda said...

Communal paper removing get to together, wish I was closer also. No doubt you wan't want to see another paper triangle for a long time after removing them all.

Queeniepatch said...

Thanks for our offer.
If I had a paper removing bee we could start in a corner and work inwards.. However I have only invited Harry Potter and his friends, but they refuse to work by hand and are not allowed to use magic outside Hogwarts, so I have to unpick all the paper myself!

Rachel said...

I can just imagine the paper trail! But it is looking good, and at least you can see the progress you've made!

Chitra Gangadharan said...

lots of work. good you started from the centre, it is better to do the hard thing first, Best Wishes!

Pamela said...

This is coming along nicely!

Sarah Aldrich said...

Clearly the solution is for all of us to take a vacation to Japan, help you remove all that paper while drinking sake. We could then go shopping for fabric!

Queeniepatch said...

Yes, it will take time!

Queeniepatch said...

I have a stash of blue, red, purple, brown, pink..... fabric, too. If I ever make a scrappy quilt with that, I might not choose the triangle as a basic shape, ha, ha!

Queeniepatch said...

You are right, the progress is visible and makes me feel good!

Queeniepatch said...

I will keep the paper in the edges so I can easily add border or binding.

Queeniepatch said...

Yes, but slowly!

Queeniepatch said...

You would not like to spend your time in Japan removing paper! Better go on a sake bar crawl and fabric shopping spree in Textile Town or at the vintage kimono shops.

Séverine said...

To bad I am so far, it is't possible to help you.

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you but that's OK. I manage all right on my own.

Susan Hook said...

What you need is a paper removing party with all your friends invited to give a hand

Janie said...

Good progress, Queenie! Slow and steady gets it done.
That Textile Town and the vintage kimono shops would be fun to explore I think.

Queeniepatch said...

That would be fun! Alas I will tackle this myself, at my own speed.

Queeniepatch said...

You would not be the only foreigner at those shops; buying local fabric as a 'souvenir' is popular amongst quilters around the world.

carorose said...

The only way to do this is slow and steady, bit by bit. Get some done, leave it, come back. Before you know it you will be wondering how you did it all.

Annet said...

O dear, this is a lot of work!

Queeniepatch said...

I can listen to the news on TV while pricing the paper off the triangles, so a lot of work can be done while doing something else. It is certainly a job to do bit by bit.

Queeniepatch said...

Yes, it is a LOT of work, but I can listen to something, or chat to someone, at the same time, so it is not HARD work.

Tanya said...

How fun to watch all the green triangles appear!

More to be seen tomorrow.
