    I made my own. I don't like to pay big bucks for things if I can figure a way to do it for less. I took a rubber made
    lazy susan and put a mate on it. I had to fill the bottom so the mat would be even but some card board work well there

    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.
    Fantastic idea !!Thanks

    I Love my revolving mat, use it all time for paper piecing. Am I the only one who uses it? I wish I had one more for downstairs so I wouldn't have to keep carrying it around like a security blanket.

    I've been wanting a revolving mat. Too costly for me, so I will try this.

    I have a revolving cutting mat which I bought at an outlet for 60% off the ticketed price ($21.00 total). I was thrilled with the price and it makes squaring blocks so effortless. If it was more than $21 - I would have hesitated. Would make a great gift!
