    Forgive me this is my first post, but I had to share.

    I've all ways wanted one of those fancy fabric cutters, the other day while surfing the net and c/o about the price, DH said why don't you use that fancy paper cutter you just had to have. One day while shopping at Costco I bought a Fiskis Paper cutter. It used the same blades as our fabric cutters. I've used it to cut strips, it's fast and precise.

    The money I saved I took to my favorite Fabric shop and had fun planning my next quilt.

    Hope this helps.

    What fabric cutter are you referring to? Rotary cutters aren't expensive at all.

    I mean the scrap book paper cutter. It is a rotary cutter by Fiskis. Like I said it works great.
