As time goes by

Thirty five years ago, I bought my first rotary cutter.

After attending my first quilting class, the teacher introduced us to a new cutting tool.  No more scissors or templates. This new tool was sure to cut accurately. And this little baby sliced through many miles of fabric for me.

Of course there were other rotary cutters along the way.

But I always felt the Olfa rotary and mat did the best job for me.

So when the anniversary rotary came out.... I had to have this red beauty.

Isn't she sweet? And now I must get busy making the quilt for the newest grandbaby who is expected to arrive early August.

Let's make beautiful music together. For another 35 years!

Happy Quilting!

I have 6 rotary cutters, but always seem to go back to my olfa.

Great post. I have similar memories too! You've inspired me to get that beautiful red Olfa 40 year rotary cutter. Thanks.

I daresay my first rotary cutter is about the same age. May we be cutters and stitchers for many more years!
