Think I need a new blade?

This one is looking pretty nicked up and ratty! :)) It's one thing I never think about until I'm struggling to get a nice, clean cut. Why is that?


Take care,

I'm guilty of the same thing. And the same goes with sewing machine needles. I don't change those until absolutely have too.

I'm the same way. It just isn't on my radar. And then I change it and it works noticeably better. Then I wonder why I waited so long!

Lol! Glad to know I'm not the only one... I'm terrible at remembering to change the blade or for thinking that I can eke out a few more cuts before it's toast but the second you do change it... I think it's my frugal side (blades seem to be so expensive) that keeps me from doing it more often though usually my safety side stops me from going too long. :-)

I change my needle and blade every new quilt. It makes a huge difference!
