Does anyone have the rotating cutting mat that Jenny uses on her videos? I'm really leaning towards getting it, but would like everyones opinion on it. Good and bad, I'd like to hear it all.

I have the 12" one...L.O.V.E. it! My mom got the 17" and it was too big for her.

I have the smaller one, 12". It's great to use with the smaller templates.

I have a 18" Fiskar rotating that I got at Wally World. Love it, I would think 12" would be too small for me personally as I also use it to square up my finished blocked down to 15 through 12 inches.

I got the 12" one for my birthday from my DS. I love it. Even though my new sewing area has a walk-around cutting table, with the mat I don't have to walk around! Great for squaring up.

I have a free standing cutting table 3 x 3 1/2 so i can just move around it instead of turning my fabric.
My DH made it for me out of our old oak kitchen table.

I have a rotating cutting mat, although not the one in the video, and I love it. There is nothing better for squaring up blocks.

I have one that is 16x16. It was the first one I bought because it was on sale at the same time I bought my first rotary cutter. I just bought a new larger mat because I found the 16x16 too small. After I start using my larger mat, I will likely use the rotating mat for it's defined purpose.

I have an 18" Fiskars rotating mat and I love it. I do my sewing on the dining room table and it's perfect to use there for cutting layer cakes and charm packs and especially for squaring up blocks.

Thanks everyone! I just purchased the fiskers 14x14 at our local Walmart and I'm going to try it out later. This was the largest size they had but I'm just going to use it for small cuts anyway.

I love my 12" one! It is a God send. He gave someone the idea to make it! Hugs, Jan L.

I have the 12" square rotating mat and really like it. I use it a lot. I also have the Brooklyn Revolver, but don't like it as well.

I have two Olfas, a 12" and a 17". Love them both, they are great for squaring up blocks.:)

I have the 12" and love it. My friend actually made her own..she took a lazy susan a cheap one she found at walmart and cut an old mat to fit it perfect. Used gorillia glue and glued it to the lazy susan and its perfect
