2 – 17” x 24” Folding Cutting Mats from OLFA

(US + Canadian addresses only.)

About OLFA + the Folding Cutting Mat:
OLFA is an industry leader in quilting and crafting tools. When you use OLFA cutting tools, you know that your cuts will be precise, and this will be reflected in the finished product.

When traveling to a class or retreat, a small mat is easiest to transport, but you crave the usefulness of a large mat. With the new OLFA Folding Cutting Mats, transportation is easy without losing the functionality of a full size mat. The wavy cut of the seam connects when unfolded to provide a continuously smooth surface for cutting. Be confident that you can cut anywhere on the mat, including across the seam, without any missed threads.

The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters: A Guide to Creating, Quilting, and Living Courageously

(US shipping only.)

Author: Sherri L. Wood
Publisher: Stewart, Tabori and Chang

Forget step-by-step instructions and copycat designs. In The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters, Sherri Lynn Wood presents a flexible approach to quilting that breaks free of old paradigms. Instead of traditional instructions, she presents 10 frameworks (or scores) that create a guiding, but not limiting, structure. To help quilters gain confidence, Wood also offers detailed lessons for stitching techniques key to improvisation, design and spontaneity exercises, and lessons on color. Every quilt made from one of Wood’s scores will have common threads, but each one will look different because it reflects the maker’s unique interpretation. Featured throughout the book are Wood’s own quilts and a gallery of contributor works chosen from among the hundreds submitted when she invited volunteers to test her scores during the making of this groundbreaking work.
