"The rotary cutter works great, The first time i used it, it felt like i was cutting soft butter... nothing to it, I am not using it for fabric ( right now) my latest projects have been with vinyl and it slices right through it with no problems."
"Measuring and cutting the fabric was the most tedious part of my sewing projects, but this cutting set removes the tedium! Update September 2, 2017: Just used the set to cut very thick leather with layers of suede backing (from an old leather purse I'm recycling). Update January 21, 2018: Used the set to separate the pages of a thick book, so that I can comb-bind the book."
"new to rotary cutting."
"I made a quilt for the first time for a baby shower, and boy was I glad to have this kit!!"
"I did buy a second blade as I didn't want to use the same blade to cut paper and fabric. I do use the same blade for paper and vinyl."
"Picking up quilting again after many years and this has been a great tool to getting back into the craft."
"The board could be a smidge stiffer (only because I dont have a proper table to work w...if I did it wouldnt matter)."
"In an effort to save money, I opted to order this set instead of the individual pieces of another brand that were reccommended by my fave quilting blogger, thinking "how much difference could there be?""

Cricut 2001974 Adhesive Cutting Mat, Standard Grip, 12 x 12-Inch, Pack of 2
The StandardGrip mat is a multi-purpose mat that is perfect for a wide range of medium-weight materials, including patterned paper, vinyl, iron-on and cardstock. Works with the Cricut Explore machine, Cricut Expression machine, and Cricut Expression 2 machine.
"The light grip mat is particularly handy, I use it with construction paper, and when I'm doing drawing-only designs on light cardstock (if I use the medium grip mats when only drawing, it's hard to get a whole sheet of cardstock up without bending it). You can also turn your mat around and put it in backwards, and there are ways to get lint off your mat, and to re-sticky your not-so-sticky old mats. In my particular case, the construction paper needed a light grip mat, and custom settings. The setting for construction paper wasn't good enough, so I used the construction paper setting, but cut it 3 times (two times wasn't quite enough)."
"I will continue to buy these in lieu of the Silhouette cutting sheets."
"These are genuine Cricut brand and come as always with covers that attach to the mat so that you can protect it from dust while not using."
"You can get two mats for almost half the price of one silhouette brand mat."
"I did purchase the blue adhesive mat to resolve the issues with cardstock and use this for more durable items."
"I ordered the Standard Grip, 12x12-Inch, 2-Pack back in August and received the real deal, the sticky, smelly, design on mat, real deal.This past order on Oct.13th, I received what appears to be a knock off."
"I tried to use the mat and the green color AND the sticky part comes right up your very first use!!!!!"
"Everything sticks to it and now it is so dirty that it barely sticks! I hope I don't have to buy a mat every month!"

Fiskars 45mm Contour Rotary Cutter (195210-1001)
Fiskars Comfort Loop Rotary Cutter with a 45 mm blade makes cutting a wide variety of quilting materials comfortable and easy. Ideal for cutting multiple layers of fabric, paper, felt and vinyl.
"One feature that particularly appealed to be about this cutter was the easy to use self-storing blade- something that's important if you tend to be one of those people (like me) who always manages to find the sharpest part of a tool to grab. Finish your cut and push the button on the side, and the blade immediately retracts inside."
"This rotary cutter had a really good safety feature that when not in use, it would pull back."
"This Rotary cutter makes cutting pieces so much faster and easier. This Fiskars Rotary cutter is so easy to use, I can cut out quilt pieces in record time."
"What you see pictured is actually the Fiskars® Titanium Softgrip® Comfort Loop Rotary Cutter."
"My picture is the one that came."
"The blade is nice for reducing burrs for paper cutting, and the retracting button is nice to have to keep the blade encased and safe."
"Now, I love writing great reviews, but this thing will cost you nothing but, money, time, and hassle, dumping you off smack dab in the middle of disappointment!"
"The little orange dot that you see on the side in the photo is what you use to hold the blade in place while you cut. It happens every second or so when I try to cut."

"This was a great set to buy as a starter set."

AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter Starter Set
Fabric Cutter Starter Set saves you time cutting so you have more time to quilt! Mix & Match Quilt Blocks. -Die Pick. -Product Registration Card. -Quick Start Guide. Fabric Cutter Starter Set saves you time cutting so you have more time to quilt!
"Makes accurate cutting for quilts EASY and FAST."
"Can't wait to use this..."
"I read that this was good if you had arthritis so I figured what the hey...I'm not getting any younger so I bit the bullet and bought it on Amazon. I read a review about it not being accurate; I don't know what they were doing to cause this outcome because I cut my 2 1/2 in strips with much more accuracy than with the rotor. Also it is a little confusing when looking at the different 'pictures' on the AccuQuilt Go fabric cutters; One has the green cover with a picture of the Go! I would strongly suggest that you make sure you get the 55100 which has the most recent version of the cutter to get the smoother and easier crank handle. Your family will be happy because now they will have a list of dyes to choose from for gift giving to you ;-) Any lastly, yes it is a bit heavy but being so it stays put very nicely when in use."
"This cuts odd shapes easily (like the applique cat with the long and windy tail)."
"She always says, man if your Mom was still alive she would be pumping out quits."
"So excited to have this tool!!"
"Love it!"

Best Quilting Rotary Cutters

Olfa Deluxe Rotary Cutter (60mm)
OLFA's largest rotary cutter uses a 60mm blade and can easily and accurately cut up to six layers of fabric. Ergonomic comfort grip handle.
"► Why I like it: I looked for several key points when deciding which rotary cutter to buy. I also wanted one with anti-slip grips and protection for my pressing index finger in case I accidentally slipped. I also wanted the blade to extend and retract via squeezing and releasing of the handle so I did not have to use the lock. But by the same token, I wanted to still have a lock in case I was doing funny shaped turns and cuts. I'm not there yet, but if I reach that point, I will not have to replace my cutter with one that is more arthritis friendly if I think and plan for it now. Finally, I wanted a good brand name for warranty, blade replacement and durability. Pair this with a cutting mat and a long straight edge ruler, and you are good to go and go fast. I am not affiliated with the manufacturer, seller or any other product related company nor am I under any obligation to write this review."
"I did notice I had to double back a few times on some cuts - it just wasn't getting through."
"It also has a lock to keep the blade in at all times when not in use."
"YES, YES, YES...I love this cutter..fits well in the hand."
"The blade on this went dull pretty quickly."
"While at a friend's house quilting recently I used the rotary cutter she owns and quickly made a mental note to pack mine next time I'm there."
"Same as fabric store but even a better price than with a 60% off coupon (which are rare)."
"This product is what I wanted, but the Olda packaging is completely written in Japanese."
