There is no doubt that in order to create beautiful quilts, you need to practice.....
But the first step in becoming an accomplished patchwork quilter is having the right tools and using the right method.

To achieve this, you simply need THREE items: a Rotary Cutter, a Self-Healing Mat, and a Ruler specially made for rotary cutting.
Here, we have all three packed as a complete set so your secret weapon is only one click away.... no need to shop around to collect all three!
"As a new quilter, I needed to purchase these products to start cutting shapes for my quilt designs.
The cutting mat works perfectly and the plastic ruler piece also helps for making straight cuts with the rotary cutter.
The rotary cutter is also a lot sharper than I had initially expected - it cuts through every material the first time without any extra effort.
So easy and fun!"
- Carrie, a New Quilter

It is a very nice sharp blade, so safety first around it.
I got extra blades too, but so far I have not needed to replace it yet.... and I'm onto my fourth quilt!"

"I'm a beginner at sewing and my cutting skills are still in the 'meh' category.
I was making some cushions and decided a rotary cutter would give me better straight lines and angles.
So I got the Olfa 45mm, mat, and ruler and it's made cutting a lot easier and it's so much faster.
I hope to use it in many other sewing projects and would recommend it for its ease of use and precise cutting.
I was even able to cut through layers of duck cloth so it can handle multiple layers of fabric at once. "

"My grandmother was an avid quilter and when she shown me how to quilt (or at least how to piece), I discovered the Olfa rotary cutter... and have wound up using it for more than just quilting.
It is as easy to use as a pizza cutter, since it is basically a very sharp pizza cutter...!"
- Katherine, a fan of Olfa
Olfa Rotary Cutter changed the quilting and sewing world by replacing the old time-consuming method of patchwork, which goes something like this:
- Make template by tracing off books or magazines onto cardboard or plastic
- Hand cut templates out carefully with scissors
- Place template on fabric, trace around them
- Cut out Each piece with scissors by hand
Did You Know?
Cutting with scissors often means holding your wrists in an awkward position....
.... especially with small movements and tedious repetitions (like hand-cutting your pieces for patchwork).
This can cause injury to your wrist over time.
When you use the method above, you will get sore hands. And when you go to sew the pieces, you will find:
- The pieces are not always identical in size, and may not fit together 100%
- By the time you've sewn quilt blocks using these pieces, your blocks end up different sizes
- Now, your blocks don't go together, you need to "fundge" and make them fit. Not fun....
- Worst of all: your quilt top is now all wobbly and bubbly, the seams are not straight any more!
Because of the easing & stretching you've had to do, all cause by very small size variation in the pieces you've cut by hand.
You see, a fraction of extra pencil line here and there on EACH little piece eventually add up to quite a bit, which contribute to all your blocks being different sizes....
Which means you either need to ease & stretch to make the blocks fit together.....
This causes some excess fabrics or tight spots on your finished quilt top, and that's where your problem begins... just try quilting one of these tops!
So, What's a Quilter to Do?
Get some Rotary Cutting gear and Experience the Difference for yourself...!
What this method does is simply eliminating the need to mark and cut individual patches of fabric.
By placing your fabric (pressed for best results) on the cutting mat, and the ruler gets placed on the fabric where you would like to make the cut, then using the edge of the ruler as a guide, run the rotary cutter along it with firm, even pressure.
This method speeds up the cutting process considerably. By allowing multiple layers of fabric to be cut at once (up to 6 layers, but I mostly do 4).... you can really save time! Once you've got the knack of squaring up, you can be certain that all your pieces will be identical.... that means your quilt will turn out looking professional, and you will really enjoy sewing the blocks together!
You will end up getting more quilts done, completely stress-free..... everyone will ask you to make them a quilt... and guess what?! Now you CAN...!!
What else is it good for....?
- Trimming photos for scrapbooking - getting your wedding album done has never been easier!
- Speedy Christmas wrapping - simply cut what you need from a roll.... another fiddly chore made simple for you so you have more time to enjoy the holidays.
- Great system for preparing artwork for picture framing. Perfect square corners every time!
- The mat makes a useful permenant fixture on your desk. The "give" provides a perfect surface for drawing, writing and tracing. Save some hand strain, prevent scratched table top and get better results all in one go.
"I've just purchased this Rotary Cutter yesterday to help me make a straight cut on wrapping paper.
OMG it sliced through the paper like a hot knife through butter and made the perfect straight line cut.
I'm thinking of getting one for my Mum and Sister to share when they do their gift wrapping and I'm sure my Sister could use it most for her Scrapbooking too.
This is a really awesome tool to have no just for scrapbookers, gift wrappers, or Fabric Crafters but just overall a excellent cutter.
I'd recommend it to everyone who wants sharp precision cutters. :D "
- Sarah, a Happy Customer
"I bought this cutter set for use in bookbinding and papermaking projects.
It cuts paper, even up to 240 gsm quickly and precisely.
I am pleased with purchasing this handy tool. "
- Rob, a Happy Customer
"I have kids that love to do art and cut paper. I cut a bunch of paper for them to do origami, the rotary cutting set makes quick work of that project and the kids had so much fun too!
The self-healing is also great as a protective surface while coloring and painting - particularly when using markers which tend to bleed through paper.
The best thing about the mat? It lasts forever - I had originally bought my mat back in 1993 and it hasn't "degraded" at all -- it still has the "self-healing" properties for the rotary cutter.
The color hasn't faded and it has held its flat shape."
- Nicole. a Happy Mum of two
Not a Quilter?See What One Of Our (Very Innovative) Customers Get Up To With Her Rotary Cutting Set:
"While I originally bought this for cutting fabric, I find myself using it whenever I need to cut something. I'm not very straight when it comes to using scissors and between the Cutting mat and the Rotary cutter, I was able to make straight uniform shapes.
When it comes to doing assignments which require kids to cut out pictures, again, this is so much easy and faster than using scissors. If I was into scrap-booking, this would also work well for that.
I also like to cut patterns out of knitting magazines and put them in protective sleeves and store them in a notebook.
Using the Rotary Cutter is so much easier, faster and gives a cleaner edge and scissors. Also, it doesn't matter whether you are left or right handed - it works equally well for either (unlike many scissors which are set up for right-handed users).
Overall, a very handy tool to have around."
- Danielle, a Happy Customer
"For most beginner quilters this is an old stand by staple and all you will ever need.
While some people don't like the fact that you have to remember to close the safety catch, I found that getting into a safe habit from the start is the best thing.
This set is a must have for the new quilter."
- Tanya, a Happy Quilter
"This set was recommended by a friend as a great beginner's rotary cutting set....
Since I had never used a rotary cutter, it took a bit of learning to use it correctly.
If this is your first, practice on some scrap fabric before you begin on your expensive stuff.
I am completely satisfied with this one for my personal cutting needs, cotton and polyester blend fabrics for quilting."
