Scrappy Trip Along progress and New Olfa Splash

Over the past few months I’ve been working on a lot of projects with deadlines. I finally wrapped many of them up and it has been so nice to do some “just-for-fun” sewing. I pulled out my Scrappy Trip-Along blocks that I started last January. They got put on the back-burner and it was fun to see again. I’ve worked on a few each day and my number is growing.
Here’s the progress as it stands right now. I’m using lots of my very favorite fabrics – the kind you hoard for “just the right project” but I’m not 100% smitten. I’m trying to figure out why.  I added some brown to the mix and I think it’s given a little more depth. I’m going to keep playing with it. I know I will LIKE however it turns out, but I kind of want to LOVE it. The original tutorial for Scrappy Trips Around the World is here. I warn you: it is addicting in the funnest kind of way.

I’m also trying to catch up on my final outstanding (as in over-due) bee block for Calli. It’s a paper-pieced Double Wedding Ring quilt. This one is going to stretch me a little, but if I can conquer it, I may have found a new project I want to try! That is what I love about Bees. I still need to make my Block #7 from the Virtual Quilting Bee!

As I’m working on these rotary-cutter heavy projects, I am loving using the new Splash rotary cutter by Olfa. This is their brand new model of the mid-size (45mm) rotary cutter. I am a die-hard Olfa rotary cutter user. I have been using them as long as I’ve been quilting and I think they are the most sturdy and stable. Any time I’ve tried a different brand of rotary cutters I’ve been disappointed or frustrated or just plain irritated.

So when the nice people at Olfa contacted me about sending one of these new Splash cutters to try out my answer was a “yes please!” I am hooked. This cutter is more ergonomic (easier on your hands), lighter-weight (but just as sturdy) and the clincher is the much-improved mechanism for changing the blade. You just slid the yellow doohickey on the back down and the blade is ready to pop off, change and put back in place. So much slicker than that knob and washer-thingy that have to be put back just-so. And, it’s turquoise so points for color too. And on top of all that: it’s cheaper than the old 45mm version. Kind of a no-brainer.

Other than sending me the rotary cutter, Olfa did not compensate me in any way for this review (though I wouldn’t turn down a life-time supply of blades if they offered it) – all the thoughts and opinions are my own. But they did send a second rotary cutter to share with a friend. So if you’d like a new Splash rotary cutter of your own, leave a comment on this post. Open until Sunday, June 9 at midnight MST. GIVEAWAY CLOSED.

Winner: ✾Jamie Lee Cooley✾June 6, 2013 at 6:11 AM

Your scrappy trip is looking good! I’d love to try the cutter…I can never remember which way the washer goes whenever I remove it to change the blade!

Now back to my sewing in random, snatched moments between slip-n-slides and handing out popsicles.

    I love my Olfa rotary cutters. I tried 3 other brands when I first started quilting. 2 of them broke quickly. The 3rd has to be manually screwed open &amp; shut so it&#39;s not safe enough for me (I use it to cut paper for foundation piecing). Then I bought an Olfa rotary cutter &amp; never looked back. Thanks for the chance to win.

    I would love to try an Olfa as I have only ever had a cheapo copy.

That is not the right word, but I am thinking lime, turquoise, orange? However it looks lovely anyway.

    Your Scrappy Trip Along is so cheerful it makes me want to stop what I&#39;m working on and start one of my own. I&#39;ve seen the new Splash rotary cutter but haven&#39;t had a chance to check it out up close. Thanks for the review and a chance to win one of my own.

    beautiful scrappy trip!! mine is being quilted right now. you have a lot of red (i love red). you may want to cut back on the red just a bit to show it off even more. i feel odd giving this thought but i love red and always need to talk myself into using less to use it to advantage!! no offense intended!! love your palette.

    I have only one rotary cutter…it is yellow, with the screw and spring-disk-thingy, an Olfa that is nearly 20 years old. It works just fine, except I am noticing that as I use it, the screw tends to loosen on its own… Hmmm, makes me think I&#39;d love to try this new fangled cutter—and see if it can go twenty years like my original!!!

And now that they have an aqua and yellow one that would match my sewing room? Well, it&#39;s PERFECT!<br /><br />The scrappy trips are hard to love mid-process, I&#39;ve found.

    I would love to have this rotary cutter! So cute – love the colors – and my husband has taken over one of mine (I gave him my pink one in hopes he wouldn&#39;t want to keep it) so I need another one!

    How fun! I would love the new cutter, I too love Olfa and the color is sweet! I sent my scrappy trip along off to be quilted this week, in the end I loved it! It really needed all the blocks to come together. Now I am so anxious to see what Natalia does with it!

    I love the color! The scrappy trip is on my bucket list. I love the ones I&#39;ve seen this year all over blots. I&#39;m glad to see a change in the rotary cutter. I hate changing the blade.

    I only use Olfa cutters as well. This one looks fantastic with the new way of changing the blade! Thanks for the opportunity!

    I would LOVE a new rotary cutter! I&#39;m currently using an older fiskars cutter and it makes my wrists ache.

    Well… clearly I&#39;m not the only one who reads your blog! But I agree with you on the 45 mm Olfa rotary cutter – it&#39;s the best! And turquoise? One of my favorite colors! <br />

    Love the scrappy trip around the world. The more I see these, the more I think I need to add it to the &quot;list.&quot; :P<br /><br />I would love a new rotary cutter that is more ergonomic and easier to change! Please count me in! Thanks for the review, too. I saw these the other day and was wondering if they were any different than the old ones.<br /><br />Sandy A

    That Olfa looks great! I don&#39;t have an Olfa, and mine doesn&#39;t seem to like to cut straight. Hmm… Thanks for the giveaway!

    Every time I change a blade, I am worried that I will drop the washer and it will disappear! This is a great improvement. And aqua? Perfection.

    I&#39;ve had my eye on that new cutter for a bit now because of the color, but wasn&#39;t sure if I&#39;d like it better than my current olfa. Sounds like it&#39;s great! And the easier blade change system….nice!

    Oh how I love Olfa! I&#39;ve tried other brands and nothing compares. They&#39;re the best. Thanks for the chance to win. Your quilts are looking fantastic. I&#39;ve heard how addicting Scrappy Trip Along is so I haven&#39;t started it yet in the best interest of getting other projects done. Maybe someday…

    Love the olfa–I just use the standard cutter, but it&#39;s all I&#39;ve ever done! I, too, feel like I need a lifetime supply of blades… Seems like I&#39;m always running out for another one!
