    Yes but only once It was a quilt of scraps-And I do mean scraps. No cutting-No squaring the pcs were zig-zagged over lapping one another My 8yr old Great-Niece wanted a Squirrely Quilt for camping -picnics and the beach She knows what she wants and its her favorite quilt. We had a ball making it together We didn't 'stuff' it- its just 2 Squirrely tops quilted together I was quite surprised at how pretty it turned out even tho it will never win any ribbons it gave me a much bigger reward Time with my niece :D :D

    Yes, quite a few have been put together without having to rip out seams.

    However, I do have to use it more that I like!!!

    i was just (griping) yesturday about how ... dull.... my seam ripper has become- must mean it's being used---i don't remember using it so much it could dull it---
    but it's ability to still do it's job is slowing down- i'm going to have to retire the dear friend- and find a new one...
    anyone else
    wear out their seam ripper lately?
    i have to say-i've been sewing for 45 years- have gone through seam rippers- for what ever reasons- but don't remember tossing one for being too dull to cut threads--
    is it the variety of threads- dulling?
    or
    the quality of materials used to make the ripper- not hold their edge well?
    or
    maybe it's just because i have no idea how old this ripper is- it could be 10-15 years old since i bought a new one--actually i think about 6 or 7--
    thinking about this i think there may be a couple in my old sewing box from back in the 70's- i will have to pull one out & see how sharp it is...
    sorry i'm just rambling along here- seam rippers---such a necessary ---

    Sometimes I think I will get away with it and that is when the powers that be send me a botched seam just to keep me in line. LOL

    As much as I also hate those private parties as well I just wouldn't want Mr Jack to get lonesome to the point that he'd disapear and then when I really needed him I'd go crazy looking for him. I misplace things already so at least if I use them alot it's easier to keep track of them.

    Never. Some days, I use Jack more than I do my machine.
