Goodies from Accuquilt

It was perfect timing!

Last week I was thinking that my old cutting mat was getting kind of fuzzy, and that I should order a new one and then I remembered how I’ve ogled over the larger 24 x 36” cutting mat but wasn’t sure if I really “needed” it.

Then I got an email from accuquilt with a fedEx tracking number and later an email describing the content.

Guess what was in it!?

A large and normal sized cutting mat, two rulers and a rotary cutter!!

SWEET!!

It was like Christmas when it got here

I wasn’t sure if I’d use both mats but now I laid them side by side and the smaller- regular sized one fits between the large one and my sewing machine.

I’ve never owned a 12 1/2” x 12 1/2” ruler but have seen tricks on how to cut WOFs with it and a regular ruler, so can’t wait to try that out!

Thanks Accuquilt!!

(Makes up for me not being able to go to quilt market this week)

-I’ll be sure to take pictures of my Accuquilt tutorials with the mat as a background!!

I have two of the extra large matts,3 large, 3 medium, two 6x12, and two 6" - a lot of matts but they all serve their purpuse (especially when I teach). I had one of the rotating matts, but hated it as it was too wobbly - so passed it on.

Glad you got to stay home with your children this quilt market and get goodies. Babies and healing boys and girls too need their moms .
To be honest I don't know what you are missing but it seems you put your family first so hopefully there will another time for you to go that fits better for your family
