I made one using one of the small seam rippers glued into a wooden bead which is glued to a small wooden block. Stays up and has a cover, so works for me.

Thanks for posting this. I found you can actually get one cheaper on Ebay once you figure in the shipping and handling cost.

I love mine. I put it in my lap when cutting the chain pieced squares apart. It keeps the cutter steady and doesn't cause as many back problems because I'm not "reaching" with my arms.

My quilting buddy 'gifted' me with one and I love it.

I am getting ready to go to retreat next weekend and will be making a king size log cabin quilt.....lots of chain piecing, so it will be very handy.

This looks like a great tool, but I am truly impressed with the make your own ideas. The one in the egg is precious. You've used it for a while and the was has held up? I was wondering about using plaster of Paris. I've got to give this a try. I am getting to make a quilt that will have many pieces chained together and this will be perfect. I can't wait to show this at my next guild meeting.

I have used the purple cutter for quite a while, they have a nice "gripper" bottom and are very sturdy. I have one in my bag to go to classes and one at home and have given them as gifts. I wouldn't want to sew without it right beside me...I also like that you can replace the blades, but so far I haven't had to do that.

I am so glad that you recommended this tool. I have looked at them several times but couldn't decide.
