QOTD - 12/11 Pinking Blade

geezerfolks_SharonG_FLDecember 11, 2011

I treated myself to a rotary pinking blade and find that I really like it! Have any of you used it to actually cut fabric for quilt blocks?

Sharon, are you using it in place of the sharp blade on everything?

I have a pinking and scalloped blade for my cutter but don't use them to cut my fabric. I think they are great for triming curves for turning and non fraying. Don't use them much but it is more not thinking about them then not liking them.

Marsha, That is what I was wanting to know....if anyone had ever done that. I love working with Kona Cotton, but it ravels so, I'm wondering if the pinking blade would help.

Jayne, I put the pinking blade in an extra handle I have and am keeping it close by with the straight blade....always ready. :)
