    Thank you
    My across the street nneighbor and quilting pal has a retorting mat and she loves it. Right now, I'm doing fine without one. When cutting small pieces, I put a board and a small mat on my ironing board, If I don't want to turn the mat or the fabric, I can walk to the other side and cut from there. More work, I know, but which of us doesn't need a little more exercise?
    Happy quilting Grandma

    I have the 12" OLFA rotating mat, I like it for squaring up blocks.

    You don't miss what you don't have. I have a rotating mat and hardly ever use it. I think a small cutting mat would work just as well and save you money. More money for fabric or thread. Things are getting so expensive

    Thanks for reminding me with this thread. I have been wanting to try one and found the 14" rotating mat on sale at Quilting-Warehouse.com and I ordered it.
