Olfa also sent each of the quilters taking part in the Save the Bees Block of the Month a new Olfa Splash rotary cutter, a folding cutting mat and a 6½” Olfa Frosted ruler. Thanks so much Olfa and Jacquelynne!

I normally use the 28mm Olfa rotary cutter and bought my first one when they first came on the market in 1979! This is something every quilter should have in their quilt room.

  1. I started this as a gift, I am thinking I might have to keep it. I will make another for a gift. I have very few quilts that I have made, usually give them away.

  2. I am fairly new to quilting and am amaze at the talent some people have! Would love to win the goodies! Thank you for sharing all that you do!

  3. I just discovered your blog and what great timing. I found fantastic ideas for gifts in you library. Thanks.

    I also use the Olfa rotary cutters, both 60 mm and for curves, 28 mm.

  4. Your blocks are beautiful! Thanks for participating as a blog hop blogger! It’s so fun to see how others are putting these blocks together!

  5. True story, I cut the back of my hand with my olfa cutter this week…it had a relatively fresh endurance blade on it…

  6. THanks for the inspiration for this bom by the colorsand fabrics you chose. Can’t wait to make one myself

  7. Hi Connie. I love the bee blocks and your choice of fabrics. Thanks for being part of the hop. It would be great to win Olfa’s Package since I don’t have a folding mat. It would be good to have when travelling.

  8. My beekeeper friends will love the little guy keeping them company, on the wall next to their netting hats…

  9. I have used the same two OFLA rotary cutters for nearly 25 years. I use the 45mm the most, but love the 28mm for intricate cutting.

  10. Your bee blocks are so darling — this has been such a fun BOM! I do love my OLFA rotary cutter. I have about eight in different sizes and shapes and colors, but my go-to is my pink, ergonomic 45mm cutter! 🙂

  11. The Save the Bees quilt blocks have been a fun project. I have learned new techniques, too. Your blocks are so pretty. Can’t wait to see them all together in a finished quilt.

  12. I am in need of a new ruler and mat. The ruler I bought is less than a year old and the markings have worn off at least 50%.

  13. I have really enjoyed participating in the Save the Bees BOM. I love seeing all the finished blocks and the different color schemes that everyone has chosen. So much talent out there!

  14. Hello Connie, I am so glad to have signed up to participate with this BOM this year. I have enjoyed each and every one of your posts, especially with some of the creative ideas you have shared along the way! Only, as you know, I have been so involved in another project that I have not been able to create any of these blocks. Plus, there are some very important other projects that I must get finished up also. All of the give away items have been special, this month is also a great prize! Thank you for sharing and encouraging! Have a spectacular day!

  15. Your bee block is so sweet. I have two different sizes of Olfa cutters, but I would also like one of the 28mm as well. Each size has its advantages and special applications can only be done with the right one.

  16. I bought and used my 28mm cutter to cut out clothes, then got into quilting.. Still have it, still use it. Great products!

  17. So interesting that you mentioned 1979 as the year Olfa first marketed their 28 mm rotary cutter. I was thinking that I was in high school when I bought my first one and it must’ve been 1979 because that’s the year I was a senior! I am so far behind in my Save The Bees blocks. I made the first one and hope to get caught up at some point. They look so awesome together!

  18. Love this block! My step brother let’s a guy use his farm property for hives. He gets honey as payment. Sounds like a good deal to me!

  19. I’ve fallen behind. Time for me to get busy! We have friends who are beekeepers and this will make a great display for them at the Farmers Market next spring. (So I have a little time…)

  20. I love the colors of your blocks. I know I am probably an odd duck here but I have never used an Olfa cutter or mat. I haven’t been using one very long and just picked one up at the dept. store. Thanks for the chance to win this!

  21. I love the colors in your blocks. I also love the Olfa cutters and mats. I have not seen the folding mat before. It looks interesting.

  22. I started using the olfa mats and cutters in the early 80s when I was sewing for my daughters. Their entire dress patterns would fit on one 36 in mat! I still love the smooth cutting and have added rulers to the tool box. Your blocks are so stinkin’ cute!
