I keep two rotary cutters in my sewing cabinet, one for fabric and one for batting. When the blade from the fabric cutter becomes dull, I switch it to the batting cutter. To easily identify which rotary cutter is which, I marked the handle of the cutter I use only for batting with a piece of blue painter's tape.
