I see yesterday's post is chock full of comments about peoples fav tools. I am glad to hear I'm not the only one not changing their blade enough. I wonder what it is about that? Interesting since today's topic leads right into that whole blade changing thing.
Last fall at quilt market I was very lucky to participate in the Olfa Designer Survey. I felt a bit like a poser, but I do have two patterns out as a guest designer at Late Bloomer Quilts. My friend Roseann is the Olfa Education Coordinator, among many other things. She hooked us up.
I'm anxious to try this new cutter. Olfa has come out with new styles of rotary cutters, but I've always clung to my original one, bought about 18 years ago. I like the slim shape. That's why I am sure I'm going to love this new one. The Quick-Change blade feature is what sells me on trying something new. They also sent a long this ruler. I've seen a lot of rulers over the years but I'm used to a 6 inch wide ruler and that's all my brain can handle.The 6 x 12 size is my favorite size ruler. I find that it's the easiest to control for cutting accuracy and the ruler I use the most. I can't wait to try out this new frosted ruler. My eyes aren't what they used to be and I need all the help I can get.
Thank you Roseann for including me in your program and thanks to Olfa for letting me test drive these new tools!
Time to head to the cutting table, have a great day sweet bloggy peeps!
