    Do you snip all the dog ears or leave 'em on?
    I do it if I have several seams coming together to reduce the bulk but if its just intersecting with a straight seam I may not.
    Should I really be snipping 'em all?

    I don't snip, but I think it is a matter of personal preference.

    I usually snip them. I find them distracting otherwise.

    I snip mine too because when I'm piecing, they get in my way and it bugs me.

    If they seem to be in the way, then I snip them. But sometimes I leave them to the end and rotary cut them off even with the block when I'm all done.
