Sunday, Sept. 25: Review something! A place, a book, a service, a product. Anything at all!

A few years ago, while taking a class given by Priscilla Bianchi at a major quilt show, I realized I forgot my cutting mat. I went out to the show floor to shop for a mat. I couldn’t believe the only vendor selling mats was Martelli. They are not cheap. Oh well, I needed one for class.  So I purchased the turntable mat.  I figured, I didn’t have a turntable mat and it would come in handy.martelli-cutting-mat

When I made my first pass on this mat I was amazed.  I know, I know, it’s just a mat.  But cutting on this mat is so smooth.  It has a completely different feel than any of the other mat’s I own. I have at least one mat made by most of the other manufacturers. The Martelli has an almost cushiony feel.

The turntable it very stable because it’s just a bit smaller than the actual mat. This keeps it from tipping.  The only problem I have is I keep forgetting I have it.  I’ll be in the middle of cutting something, where a turntable would make a different, and realize I should have used it.

Martelli has a variety of cutting solutions.  I’m always afraid of stopping at their booth at shows because I know I will probably buy something.

Note: Some of the links are affiliate links to amazon so you can purchase the products if you so choose.  I have not been asked by Martelli to promote their products.  This post was prompted by the Blog-tember challenge of the day.

Oh, and by the way, the class was great. It was on working with stripes.  I still haven’t completed the quilt I started that day.  I’ll have to finish it and post it soon.

Have you tried any of the Martelli products?  How did you like them?
