Olfa Anniversary + Rotary Cutter Block Tutorial

Rotary Cutter Block Tutorial - In Color Order
Happy Monday! Where would quilting be today without the invention of the rotary cutter? Thankfully, we never have to know! Olfa is celebrating 35 years of rotary cutting this year. So, let's party! I have a little review, block tutorial and giveaway for you.

Rotary Cutter Block Tutorial - In Color Order
Olfa kindly sent over a package with a few products in it for me to try! Part of their celebration includes a commemorative quilt, so I put these tools through their paces making a block for it!

Rotary Cutter Block Tutorial - In Color Order
The guidelines for the block were pretty minimal, it had to be 6.5" and have yellow in it. I decided to take inspiration from the design of the rotary cutter, which surprisingly isn't much different from the very first rotary cutter! You can see a photo of it here. I drafted up my design in Illustrator and went with paper piecing for the construction.

The rotating cutting mat is too cool! It conveniently is the perfect size to fit between my sewing machine and iron, which is where I like to work when paper piecing. With all the trimming down, having the rotating mat is pretty handy. I know it will be useful for trimming down half-square triangles as well!

I don't generally work with 6.5" blocks, so having the tiny 28mm Rotary Cutter was great for cutting such small pieces and trimming the seam allowances while piecing. I tested it on the curved double wedding ring templates as well, and it handled the curves great! It will definitely come in handy for that project, which I'll share more about soon!

The final product to try out was a 6.5" Frosted Advantage Ruler. Now I'm not going to lie, I was pretty excited about this one! This is my favorite size of ruler, and I use them a TON. This may be my... fourth ruler of this size! The first two have had their corners worn down from use, so having another to add in to the mix is good! The frosted bit sticks nicely to the fabric, but is still easy to see through. I also really like the lines through every 1/2"!

The verdict? Olfa makes great products. I have been using their 45mm Quick Change Cutter (seen above), exclusively for a few years now and I love it. It is literally my perfect cutter. I do a lot of cutting, and unlike other cutters, it has never given me a single blister or sore. The handle is bigger than others which makes it easy for me to grip and squeeze, even with my arthritis. I will definitely use the 28mm for the odd project here and there, but the 45mm will remain my go-to! :)

Without further ado, here is my final block! Want to make one too? It would be really fun as is, done scrappy or done with four different fabrics! You can find the free pattern download here!

Happy Sewing!

  1. My favorite would probably have to be my rotary cutter. If I had to cut everything with scissors I probably wouldn't quilt.

  2. My favorite tool remains my Olfa rotary cutter. I received my first one as a gift close to 35 years ago. They've changed the face of quilting and made the process easily accessible to so many sewists.

  3. It's gotta be the rotary cutter. As soneone who learned to quilt before they existed, I can tell you it's MUCH easier with the rotary cutters.

    ReplyDelete
  4. My OLFA rotary cutter ; my 1st one was a different brand and it didn't work out well for me and I almost gave up using a rotary cutter ; but then I got an Olfa and it's all been good now ! ( the old one is still here , for paper ! ) I know I would not quilt if it were up to cutting with scissors !

    ReplyDelete
  5. I love my olfa cutter! I want to try their rotating mat!

    ReplyDelete
  11. rotary cutter is essential !

    ReplyDelete
  12. It would definitely be my rotary cutter!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm a big fan of the square rulers too! I have a 3 1/2" square that I use all the time. Now I need to check out the frosted ones - non-slip would be awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  14. As seems to be the concensus, the rotary cutter is also my fave. Can't imagine cutting quilt blocks with scissors, but I also find my 6 1/2 inch square ruler invaluable as well. Thanks for the opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  15. i am new to sewing and am currently trying to teach myself how to sew and quilt. at this point, my favorite tool is my seam ripper!! hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  16. I just got an 18mm rotary cutter for curved templates. I love it. I have been coveting the rotating mat for a while!

    ReplyDelete
  17. My giant "hardware" ruler.... I know they say to never use a rotary cutter against metal but I have been using this ruler for the past 10 years! It is AWESOME!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I would have to agree with the rotary cutter. I could not do without it.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Just one favorite tool? I can't decide between the rotary cutter and mat. Because really, the cutter is no good without the mat! ;) Believe me, I've tried it on my granite countertop - that's a no no....

    ReplyDelete
  21. The rotary cutter gets my vote as well. I made four quilts with scissors a long while back. It is laborious and so inaccurate. The rotary cutter is the best invention ever!! Thank you for the cute block tutorial as well as the giveaway opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love the BlocLok ruler for squaring up HSTs. I use it so much.

    ReplyDelete
  23. hah I JUST bought a teeny rotary cutter and can't believe how awesome it is for trimming tiny blocks, so it's my new favorite tool for sure :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I can not live without my rotary cutter!
    Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Rotary cutter. No question. The first time I cut pieces for a quilt to with one, my life changed forever!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Aside from the rotary cutter, my favorite is the 360° rotating mat. It makes trimming up HST and flying geese a breeze!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I don't think I would be quilting as much if I didn't have a rotary cutter and mat.

    ReplyDelete
  28. My rotary cutter and collection of mats of various sizes definitely make everything better. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. My favorite tool is my new mobile sewing center because it holds everything I need to take my sewing on the road. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I agree, my rotary cutter is my favorite tool. I could never cut as accurately or as much with sicisors.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have been using Olfa cutters and rulers for years and love them. As both a quilter and rubber stamper I have an Olfa cutter that is reserved just for paper cutting which helps tremendously with accuracy when I am making greeting cards. Yea Olfa!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm old enough to remember quilting before Olfa introduced the rotary cutter. My favorite tool is my rotary cutter but I also can't live without my Olfa spinning mat.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I wouldn't want to be without my rotary mat.

    ReplyDelete

  35. Thanks for the giveaway! I love using all of the various ruler sizes that I have been slowly collecting, but I can't leave out my trusty seam ripper! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hello Jeni! Thanks for the giveaway. I love my binding clips and my Olfa cutter!

    ReplyDelete
  37. It would have to be the rotary cutter...and then of course the mat and rulers to go with it. Love your block and that you modeled it after the rotary cutter. Thanks so much for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love the rotary cutter - specifically the quick change cutter. Before I got that I used to dread changing blades.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Those new frosted rulers look cool. My new favorite tool is the seam ripper with the eraser on top.

    ReplyDelete
  40. My favorite quilting tools are the rotary cutter, mat, and rulers.

    ReplyDelete
  41. My favorite tool is my seam ripper with the rubber end - helps me brush away stray threads. :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. My favorite quilting tool is my rotary cutter.

    ReplyDelete
  43. My favorite is definitely my rotary cutter. I don't think I'd want to be a quilter without it!

    ReplyDelete
  44. My rotary cutter. I can't imagine having to hand cut all of my pieces out with scissors - it would wreak havoc on my carpal tunnel.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Aside from my sewing machine (because if I had to sew a quilt by hand, it just wouldn't happen), my rotary cutter and mat. I like the idea of a non-slip ruler, that would be very helpful!

    ReplyDelete
  46. The rotary cutter and mat are the BEST tools ever! I also like the square rulers and rotating mats. If I had to choose another it's my design wall. I love putting blocks out to make sure I like the layout before stitching the blocks together.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Well, of course I love my rotary cutter and mat. But just to be different, I'll mention another tool I love -- my wooden wallpaper seam roller. I use it anywhere I might have finger pressed before and sometimes even use it in place of my iron. Very handy.

    ReplyDelete
  48. My favorite quilting tool would have to be the thread cutter. I can't even begin to imagine the quilting world without the rotary cutter and mat. That would be like starting all over again, back to the basics. Thank you and Olfa for the wonderful opportunity to win and for that tutorial. Gotta love Olfa.

  50. I have an Olfa Comfort Grip rotary cutter and I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Besides my rotary cutter, my seam ripper gets a lot of use.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I remember when I took my first quilting class (30+ yrs ago!), the cutter I got was an off brand something or other...I felt so well equipped when I broke down and replaced the off brand with an Olfa! Still have it, still love it!!!! I also love my little 6 1/2 in ruler I got for trimming hsts for your HST BOM! :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love my clover chalk liner and clips!! your block is great!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I LOVE my rotary cutter as well but I Think my most used tool is my new cutting mat. I was probably killing my rotary cutter cutting fabric on a cutting board but it was the only think I had. I finally went out and bought a small cutting mat to do some real cutting. The rotating cutting board would be fantastic as I am left handed and often line my fabric up the wrong way. :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love my rotary cutter but would not want to trim another HST without a rotating mat. Thanks Olfa!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I have a quilting ruler that hooks onto the end of my cutting mat to anchor it. I love that because it doesn't slide or shift when I am using it. I may have to replace it, and I hope I can find another one just like it!

    ReplyDelete
  57. My favorite would have to be my Olfa rotary cutters, then my Olfa mats, then my Olfa rulers. I'm an Olfa gal all the way.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Favorite tool? I have to say the Internet, where I can always find new techniques, new fabrics, and new inspiration. The ability to meet and share ideas with like-minded folks all over the world has revolutionized quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love my 60 mm Olfa cutter for long cuts. N

    ReplyDelete
  60. Next to my rotary cutter, my top fav quilting tool is my set if Clover Wonder Clips. They have saved my hands during many nights of hand stitching binding on quilts!

    ReplyDelete
  61. While the most useful is my Olfa rotary cutter my favorite is my swiveling cutting board from Olfa. It's so nice to move the cutting mat and not have to lift what I'm working on!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love your block! Thanks for sharing the template. My favorite quilting tool is definitely the rotary cutter. I don't think my pieces would be very good if I had to cut them with scissors :) Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  67. No question, the rotating cutting mat! The rotary cutter has been around longer then I've been sewing so I don't know any other way to cut. I even used it for making clothes. When I discovered the rotating cutting mat things got a whole lot simpler for quilting! Of the "new" tools this is my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  68. My favorite tools are my calculator, rulers and rotary cutter.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Well, it's just gotta be my Olfa! Thanks for the chance. I love your block!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Other than my rotary cutter I love basting spray, not sure if some would consider it a tool but to me it is a lifesaver as I don't have floor space to properly baste with pins.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Other than my rotary cutter, my favorite tool is the June Tailor Perfect HST/QST ruler. Can't live without it!

    ReplyDelete
  91. My favorite tools go together like Peanut Butter and Jelly. Without one, the other is useless, so I have to pick two. They are my rotary cutter and mat. I guess I should have said three, because you have to have a ruler too. cdahlgren at live dot com.

  107. I must say that my Olfa rotary cutter is my favorite tool. Many years ago I made my first quilt with directions from a women's magazine. It was a Trip Around the World and it called for 4" squares. I hand marked and cut all of the squares for a king sized quilt with scissors. Not long after I heard about the new Olfa rotary cutter!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  113. I love many of my tools. My absolute favorite is my seam ripper. My brother is a wood turner and he made it for me. It is made from wood from his wife's dad's property which is across the road from the one-room school we attended. It appeared in the mailbox one day when I was really down last year after my husband died. That makes it very, very special.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I have an Olfa splash rotary cutter. Love it.

    ReplyDelete

  120. I think that without a rotary cutter (mat and rulers too) making quilts would be a lot more complicated and time consuming. So, I'd have to say my rotary cutter is my favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  121. There are so many useful quilting tools but I have to say that I probably never would have started quilting in the first place had it not been for rotary cutters and acrylic rulers. Olfa brand has been my favorite for years and I use several different sizes of each depending on what I'm working on.

    ReplyDelete
  122. My favorite, couldn't do without, quilting tool is my Olfa rotary cutter. .

    ReplyDelete
  123. I love my Olfa rotary cutter. A year or so ago I saw the pinking blade on sale and bought it. It is such a fun extra tool for my cutter- I don't use the pinking blade nearly as often as the regular blade, but when I do, it makes me SO happy! Fingers crossed for this great giveaway! buffy AT dblawoffices (DOT) com

  126. I love the Olfa deluxe ergonomic rotary cutters. I have both, the 45mm and 60mm, but use the 60mm most often. Thanks for tutorial and thanks Olfa for the goodies.

    ReplyDelete
  127. thanks for the opportunity, and without the cutter mat and rotary cutter I would not be quilting. Knowing that the old quilts my grandmothers made, were made with scissors, is mind boggling.

    Jeni , thanks so much for the Olfa Block tutorial, super easy and I appreciate that.

    ReplyDelete
  138. My favorite thing is my HUGE cutting mat. I got the larger one this summer and I absolutely love it!

    ReplyDelete
  139. Rotating mat is a great tool.

    ReplyDelete
  140. It's hard to pick one, because so many things like the rotary cutter make quilting easier. But I think my favorite is my stylus, because it helps me keep my seams matched up perfectly as they go under the presser foot. In the end, that's what everybody sees.

    ReplyDelete
  141. My favorite quilting tool is my sewing machine.

    ReplyDelete
  142. I love my rulers! Also my rotary cutter and mat.

    ReplyDelete
  148. I would have to say that my favorite quilting tools are my various pairs of "cheater glasses." Without these, I would never be able to see my work adequately. I don't have any Olfa tools, but am excited for the opportunity to win some. Happy Anniversary Olfa.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Well my seam ripper comes in very handy, but I couldn't quilt without my rotary cutter and mat. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete

  151. I love the rotating mat! b.j.day68atgmaildotcom

    ReplyDelete
  152. I won an Olfa cutter a few years ago and it's my favorite! I actually need to get a new blade so I can start using it again.

  155. The rotaray cutter has to be my favorite tool. Without it I doubt I would ever have started quilting!

    ReplyDelete
  156. I love my Kwik Klip for fast pin basting without blisters!

    ReplyDelete
  157. Just one? I guess it's going to have to be the rotary cutter. I started a quilt 28 years ago when I was first married and I didn't use a rotary cutter. Needless to say, it was never finished and I finally donated the parts and pieces to Goodwill a few years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  158. My quarter-inch tool that attaches to my machine is right up there at the top, having equal billing with my rotary cutter!!

    ReplyDelete
  159. I love my super sharp little pair of scissors I use for sewing and needlework.

    ReplyDelete
  160. Right now I am making two t-shirt quilts out of a friend's 10 year collection of cancer T-shirts. She recently passed and her mother asked me to make the quilts for her sons. So my favorite tool right now besides my rotary cutter is my 15 inch square cutter.
