As I live in Australia the costs of the blades is more than in US> Some time ago I read a post that a lady said her hubby found a way to sharpen her blades to make them last a bit longer, but she didnt say how he done it.

I finally finished these pillowcases for the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge and will turn them in at the next guild meeting of my local Modern Quilt Guild.
