need help with that quilt?

So maybe you, like me, have been inspired by quilts like these, but weren't really looking forward to removing all of the paper foundations.
 Well.
Let me introduce you to a very practical and cheap source of help for this tedious task.
Find a toddler:

Hard at work, the little monster...

The best part-- he loved it.  He wanted to do it over and over, taking each piece and walking it to the trash.  Sure, he grabbed the garbage bag and shook out the contents all over the living room twice, but we got all but 4 of the 36 papers removed in just over an hour!
If you want to try this method but can't find your own toddler, email me, maybe we can set up a playdate..
