That is one of the reasons why I don't paper piece. Such a nice quilt though.
Cute! I'm sure you're exaggerating and there were only about half that many pieces of paper ;)
I think it makes a delightful baby quilt. The new mothers of today don't do "traditional" as we know it, do they?*LOL* I don't paper piece anything larger than a mini quilt for that very reason!!!
Be it newsprint, phone book pages, or special paper foundation paper, it's a pain to remove. I do like the quilt and I love the name. (What would a Fern and Wilbur quilt look like?)
I give it a light mist of water, makes the paper 100% easier to remove. I love it, it looks soft and cuddly.
Love the scrappy baby quilt and its happy fabrics.Boy, do I hear you on the bother of removing paper backing! Like Janet O. said, I don't paper piece anything large either. I'll try QuiltingFitzy's suggestion to spray the paper a bit when I next, if ever, do paper piecing again.Hugs!
Nodding in agreement (that really is a BIG number).
Grrr. I'm with you on that paper pulling. There has to be an easier way! But you've made a pretty quilt and used up fabric AND paper!
Remind me to show you a way(s) to paper piece without all that paper pulling.J x
A bit late, I know, but there was no need to paper piece but I see Judi is ahead of me!! Mary in Canterbury
I must've been bad if you felt sufficiently moved to total up the number of pieces of paper :)
