Rotating Cutting Mat

This cutting mat makes trimming blocks a breeze. This cuts my time when trimming Flying Geese blocks from the Bedroom Quilt Pattern in half! 

Olfa Rotary Cutter

I have updated my rotary cutter preference just recently. I ordered several to test and this one is by far my favorite! I love the safety feature and ergonomic grip. The blade is always safely retracted until you use it so you won't forget to shut it yourself! It automatically retracts when you release the grip. Wonderful!

Endurance Cutting Blade

I thought this was a sales tactic, but it is not! I never have to cut twice. This blade has lasted me a lot longer and is smooth like butter. It's worth the extra few bucks!

Omnigrid Cutting Ruler

This treasure has been with me for years! I have had this ruler for over 10 years and it's still going strong. I love that it is the same height as my cutting mat. It's perfect!

Olfa Cutting Mat

One of the many things I love about this cutting mat is that the measurements are on the outside of the perimeter line. A lot of mats have the numbers on the inside and when you lay your fabric on top you can't see them. This mat is also self-healing if treated properly! 
  

Creative Grid Triangle Ruler

This 60 degree ruler is a must for the Living Room Quilt Pattern. It's a great tool to have on hand for any quilt patterns. 

Creative Grid 6 ½" Quilt Ruler

This ruler really is a must have! I use mine on every single one of my quilts. It's very handy when you're making The Playroom Quilt Pattern and the Brothers Quilt Pattern.

Quilt Basting Safety Pins

I only pin bast my quilts. I have tried spray basting and it's more trouble than it's worth. These curved quilting pins make that perfect quilt sandwhich a breeze.
