Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.
I really need to get one of these things. I just learned a new block that you make a cut, turn the whole thing and make another cut, doing that 4 times. I used my smaller mat with the ironing side down. But it would be MUCH easier with the rotating mat. Thanks for sharing.
Faith is not about everything turning out OK; Faith is about being OK no matter how things turn out.
I have the Fiskars yellow colored rotating mat too, sold at Walmart. It seems sturdier and spins as easily as the Olfa rotating mat and it's prettier, cost less too. I keep it on my ironing table for quick trims.
I bought mine too, with the coupon! Great purchase!
Bella Bo I have one similar to what yours looks like. Mine was made by a private individual and I bought it thru a quilt teacher just a couple of years ago. Only part I don't like about it is how heavy it is.
Bella, I don't have one, but a student in a class I taught on Saturday did. I had not seen them like that before !! Just bought my DDIL one for her bday next week -- I think she'll like it. JUST BE CAREFUL, store it only in a flat position -- mine warped and will no longer turn nicely.
This is one of my favorite quilting tools! I have the larger one in my sewing room and use the smaller one for classes. My smaller one is now pink! I had worn throught the original mat (green Olfa) and I had an extra pink mat, so I cut it to size and super glued it right over the original mat! Works great!
Have a happy day,
I use mine all the time. Bought it with a coupon!
I had one on my Amazon wish list last Christmas. I must have been good 'cos I got it!
I use it all the time and it's a handy size to take to my Quilt Guild.
My husband made me a rotating mat holder. He used a turn-table bought at walmart & a board cut to my specifications. I glued the board on the turn-table and I can change the mat to what ever size needed at the time.
