Default Light Colored Cutting Mat Suggestions

I am looking for a light colored cutting mat. I find I am having trouble seeing dark fabrics on my dark green Olfa. I prefer a 24x36 but would settle for an 18x24. Would also like the same durability as the Olfa's.

I like Quilter's Select mats. Light gray on one side and dark gray on the other. Both sides have easy to see lines. I bought a small one and liked it so much I bought the biggest size one.

I have a Fiskars cutting mat that is light yellow on one side & light green on the other. I like the color but it didn't hold up like my Olfa did. It started to "peel" in a few places. When I can't stand the peeling anymore I will go back & buy an Olfa again.

Olfa is good enough for me.

I bought this one and have been very happy. Blue on one side, pink on the other. The only problem is that the numbers only go to 23 and 35, not 24 and 36. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I have this aqua mat in 24 x 36 size and also the 18x24 size.


Sometimes I change mat when cutting fabrics depending on colors.
