I'm working on a new quilt.
I have so many things going at the same time it keeps me getting bored with one project.
Do you do that?
I like to have applique ready to stitch while watching television.
Last night while cutting pieces for the blocks I'm working on I was thinking about asking my quilting friends... How OFTEN do you change the blade on your rotary cutter? Sometimes I let mine get so dull I am sawing the fabric, which is so crazy. When I change it I can hardly believe how it cuts like a hot knife through butter and wonder why I wait so dang long to change the blade. I find if my cutting mat has ridges in it the blade will skip and that makes it frustrating as well, a couple of my mats are ready to go to the trash.
Another question I have is How OFTEN do you change the needle on your sewing machine.. I have a friend who changes her needle every 4th bobbin. I don't keep track of my bobbins so I am not sure of the bobbin count but I like to change my needle after every two to three projects depending on the size of the project (does that make sense?).
