using a shorter than normal stitch length makes removal easier- place a finger over the end of the stitches & tear the paper away- small bits will disolve- disappear when the quilt is laundered- you can run a finger nail over the seams & remove most of the bits left- but as long as you are not leaving behind large pieces of paper it will go away. i generally use 16-18 stitches to the inch when using a tear away- and secure the ends of the stitching -with a reverse stitch or (fix stitch) so tearing the paper away doesn't pull out any stitches.
