a fresh rotary cutter blade makes. It's been a while since I cut any fabric with it. I had no idea that it was so dull. I'm embarrassed that I had the kids in my hand quilting class use it. No wonder it was so hard for them. :wink:

It sure does make it easier to cut when the blade is sharp!

(That goes for kitchen knives, too)

Been there...done that. Makes you wonder why you didn't change it sooner.

That is so true. The same thing is true of a needle.

Been there as well. Use one of those indelible black marking pens to date the blade when you put it in. Then you'll know when you last changed it. It helps.
