I just finished up a quilt for a baby gift for a friend of mine. Bless her heart, she’s 47, 4 girls, one with Cystic Fibrosis and she just had a little boy. I also just finished up a border on a Round Robin Quilt that we are participating in with our Quilting Guild. Would love to win this & Good Luck to everyone.


Congratulations again Tracy, I will contact you by email!

And thank you everyone who participated in this Giveaway, Y’all have all been so kind!

Maybe I will do one again sometime!?


 Come back soon for a “Trip Around the World” quilt tutorial

Thanks all!

Review and GIVEAWAY!

The Review:

No buyer’s remorse with this OLFA 45mm Deluxe Ergonomic Rotary Cutter.


painting and picture day 039

The best OLFA rotary cutter I have owned! I absolutely love it!

Why you might ask?


  • This rotary cutter is good for almost anything: cloth, fabric, paper, wallpaper, and even leather.       


  • It is comfortable to hold


  • And the best part: It has a safety feature!


Yes, this is what makes this OLFA rotary cutter so amazing in my eyes! I think it is safe to say (though I am not in any way recommending) that this rotary cutter is great for any avid sewer with pets or small children.

The red button on the side of this rotary cutter is the safety.

You simply press it, and hold the handle like you would a regular rotary cutter. The large black protruding handle will move with your hand, allowing the blade to stick out far enough for you to cut normally.

When you release the handle, to set the rotary cutter down, the blade resumes its original position.

Click the red button back the other way to lock the blade in place.

Because sometimes, as quilters, we forget to close our rotary cutters, I believe that this rotary can reduce many accidents. Regular rotary cutter can be harmful and dangerous! {If you have never used a rotary cutter, don’t laugh! = ) I’m serious! These things can be a deadly weapon}

I honestly believe OLFA has made a great product here!


What does OLFA say?

“A rolling razor blade that’s perfect for all of your sewing and quilting needs. Sharp enough to cut through more than 6 layers of fabric, making quick work of your strip, block, and pattern cutting. Comfortable ergonomic handle reduces hand and wrist fatigue, and dual-action safety lock allows the blade to lock open for comfort and closed for safety. Blade is made of high quality tungsten carbide tool steel for unparalleled sharpness and superior edge retention. For right- and left-handed use. Satisfaction Guaranteed.”
