Many years ago I made my first of many rag quilts. My hand grew so tired when snipping with regular scissors. I am so glad I invested in a pair of rag snips at the LQS I go to. Yes, they probably cost me in the neighborhood of 25-30$ but they have been worth every penny of it. Other than knowing it is a boring activity, I do not mind snipping my rag quilts at all. I think you would really like them were you to invest in a pair!
