    Rotary Blades

    YOu have all scared me off going to Joann's on Black Friday. All I want is really rotary blades.
    I see some on sale on Joann's latest online flier.
    Question is- are any all that much better or worse than any other?

    I think they are about all alike. The ones I got at Harbor Freight seems to be just as good. I am saving my old ones in case they come up with a good way to sharpen them. I want to ask my man who sharpens knives for me.
    I love your quilts, especially the one on the left. I love the baby blocks and have done them previously so I think I would love this one. I have never seen it before. Thanks.

    Go to Harbor Freight and buy the carpet blades, they are just as good. Just don't make the mistake I made and accidentally have two stuck together (there is oil on them), they don't work as well that way....

    It is from ABD 3-D by Marci Baker. It is actually strip pieced- no set in seams.
    Thanks for the tip. I will check out Harbor Freight.

    Your quilts are beautiful. I go to joanns on black Friday but not super early lol too dangerous early! I purchased the harbor freight ones but wasn't that impressed. I am going to check another batch just in case. I use whichever comes out cheaper, usually fiskars

    I'm really happy with my Harbor Freight blades, tho others have had challenges with them. Grateful for a change that it was my luck to get a really sharp batch with no challenges at all ... at least so far. I haven't opened all 20 pkgs that I bought,

    Oh yes, I meant to add that I also love your batik blocks in progress.

    I really didn't like the Harbor Freight blades either. Thought I was the only one until this thread.

    Check JoAnn's online. In the past they have had FREE shipping on Black Friday.... just like being at the store with no crowds!
    I have always used Fiskars, but just recently bought some Harbor Freight to experiment with.

    Where am I? And what am I doing in this handbasket?
