    I picked up a couple 8x11 ish Olfa mats for about .25 cents each at a local quilt show boutique. I use that to square up blocks or take to class. They are small enough to keep to the side of the machine, and can turn just as good as the rotating mats for a lot less money! They shouldn't be that much money at Joann's with a coupon, or keep an eye out at local shows.

    I have the Olfa one, and have just about worn it out. It's not that I've used it that often - but when I use it, I must be using it too hard.

    Although I prefer Olfa mats, I couldn't justify the extra expense for the Olfa brand, so I bought the Fiskars 14" rotating mat. It's been fine. It's great because it's big enough to square up a 12.5" block and when the mat goes, I will cut up an Olfa mat and glue it to the top.

    I use mine all the time....it's so handy for squaring up. As it is pretty well worn, I'm going to buy another to replace it.
    When you sleep under a quilt, you sleep under a blanket of love.

    My cutting station is a high kitchen cooking island on locking wheels. It folds up, even though I rarely do this as I have bot shelves full. I can access the fabric 360 degrees.

    I do have an older Brooklyn Revolver and love it but don't need it now.
    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    I haven't used mine a lot but when I do I really like it. I mostly forget it until I'm having problems caused by having to move my fabric and then I get it out and really appreciate it.
