Recently there was a thread discussing how many things quilters will use way past the time we should replace them. Rotary blades kept coming up. Almost everyone agreed they used them too long and then wondered why because life got so much easier when they were replaced.
After spending yesterday chewing through fabric I decided all those posters where right. Just replace the darn thing! If quilting isn't fun, why do it and chewing your way through 60 quilt block is not fun. So I have in a new blade. Things are all much more square, my wrist isn't tired from pressing so hard and everything is going faster.
Thanks for the reminder that cheaper isn't always the way to go.
