I use my cutting mats all the time. Would not cut without them.

Love mine, but I got it with 50% off coupon from JoAnn Fabrics. They are pricy, but I use mine often.

I have both the small and larger sizes and use my all the time when cutting. I have limited space, so revolving the regular cutting mat was too cumberson. they are really great when you use the small templates for cutting shapes from strips.

It sure makes Squaring up blocks an easy job. I love the mats!

I have a 12 (or 13?) inch square and I like it. I have a big cutting mat mounted upstairs in my sewing room for large cutting but this 12" one I can take around the room for small cuts or downstairs if I want to work down there for awhile by the TV. Mine did come apart from the bottom but when I really looked it at, it was simple to plunk back together. Its not for heavy cutting - or instead of having a big mat, but definitely useful!!

I do not own any of these, yet, but i do have a question, does anyone have the Alto Cutting System, or have you heard of it, do you like it and how does it compare to these matts and the accuquilt go, i will be attending the Paducah Quilt show at the end of April, and if i see it again, i just may get it, but first i wanted your opinions.
thank you sew much

I have one and don't find it that useful - doesn't stay together or the ruler moves anyway and I have to readjust ...

I have one too, and use it ALL the time - so much easier to get truly squared-up blocks!

I have one and don't really like it. I prefer to use a smaller cutting mat ontop of the larger mat and just rotate the smaller one. Seems to work for me

I bought a lazy susan from Ikea for about 5 and using an old cutting mat, my son cut and glued it to the top. Perfect.
