I bought a Fisqures (sp) rotary cutter. It worked great until the blade got dull. I replaced the blade and began to cut out fabric for next quilt and I got about half-way through and it won't cut again. I have to push down hard to get blade to cut and now my hands are hurting. I thought a new blade should last for more then 1/2 a quilt. So I trecked to Joann's and bought another replacement blade. Same thing has happened. I am squaring up blocks and nothing is cutting. What is wrong with this cutter? Am I doing something wrong when I cut that is dulling the blade really fast? How long should a blade last? If I buy another rotary cutter what brand do you recommend?
Thanks for the help.
