    I have one and I really like it. It won't ever replace my BIG flat one but for trimming and when I sit I really enjoy using the rotating one....even if I don't rotate it every single time I use it.

    I don't use mine often, but it comes in really handy when you need to square up lot of blocks. I recently finished an Anita's Arrowhead quilt top. Each block needed trimmed down just right. I could cut all 4 sides without having to move it by using my rotating mat, so yes, it's worth the cost even though I don't use it often. I have the green one with the little black circle thing on the bottom and it works well for me.

    I have both sizes and live them. I leave them out on my cutting table and they get plenty of use.

    I think the Olfa one is a waste of money. I found a home-made one at a quilt show that is about 11" x 14" and I love it. It turns much easier than the Olfa and works greater. Don't recommend the Olfa.

    I finally bought one last week with a Joann's coupon. I decided the 13inch Fiskars was the most practical for me. Now that I have used it to true up some blocks....why did I wait so long to buy this?

    I have the small Olfa and I really like it. I use it a lot when I'm squaring up HST.
