    I bought mine years ago at Joann Fabrics. I use it all the time for lots of things. I use it mostly for trimming my edges for pre washing fabric. My kids used it for ?????? :)

    I rarely use mine except for trimming edges before pre-washing. For cutting pieces to quilt, it is not very good. It's hard to match up edges for a good 1/4" seam.

    Yes I have one, and also a wave blade.

    Do I like it? Yes, it does a great job. It takes some getting used to it along the edge of the plastic ruler as it's easier to nick into it.

    I seldom use it and bought it for craft use, not for quilting.

    I use mine for trimming edges of fabric before washing. It works great! I had an old rotary cutter and just bought a pinking blade to use with it.

    I'm looking for something to eliminate all the strings that end up on the carpet (I hand piece/hand quilt). Can it be used for cutting quilt pieces?

    Yes, it can be used.
    Though I am like the PP who mentioned it's harder to line things up with the pinked edges.

    Even with that, it's not foolproof ... you are still going to have loose threads! If you're going to sew/quilt, it's something you might want to get used to.

    Then what is the advantage of having one?

    I have the wavy blade that looks like pinking with rounded points and fits in my Olfa cutter. Especially like to use it when cutting blocks that I'm going to do applique work on as it keeps them from fraying. Bought it at Joann's with a coupon.
