Hi everyone! It’s Cindy reporting in from Ohio. Sandy has been traveling this week and I can’t wait to hear if she found some new quilt shops.
Well, it’s time…I need to replace my cutting mat.
I currently use an Olfa cutting mat that is 36 inches wide x 24 inches tall. This mat fits perfectly on the top of my cutting table with room to spare.
Yesterday, I was rotary cutting some smaller pieces and they just weren’t working out when I sewed them together. Upon further inspection, I realized my cutting mat has seen better days (or possibly years) AND it’s wreaking havoc on my perfectionist tendencies.
Lots of ridges and pits on this faithful mat. No wonder my tiny pieces weren’t fitting together!
So…I need some cutting mat advice!
What cutting mat brand do you use and why do you like it?
What is the best way to “up-cycle” a used cutting mat?
