that is a good idea and you save money that way too for more fabric to buy.

I'm fortunate to have several sizes of mats. Just lay your block to be cut on the needed size, pick a larger size mat for underneath. You can turn the top mat as you cut. Easy-peasy.
YUP, you and I think alike!

I. Have several mats I'm different sizes. I use my revolving mats a lot when I do paper piecing or cutting small pieces.

I use a lazy susan that started out life in an entertainment center holding a tv.Picked it up at a thrift store and it holds a good-sized mat.

Thanks Joyce.

I just bought two of them (using coupons from Jo-Anns).

It's nice to know that I can now have a very big one that can move instead of mean. I appreciate all the tips on this website.

Enjoy quilting. :mrgreen:

Thanks for this tip!! I've drooled over the revolvers for some time but they are pricey, so I just wipe my chin and go on. I'll definitely use this tip!!AND...my shirt will be drier.
