Great giveaway, Christina! Just yesterday I had to do a bunch of trimming on small blocks and a smaller mat would have worked well. Nothing like the right tool for the job :)

Little mats are good things!
Some cutting is always tiny and being able to do it at the sewing machine would be a bonus.

I do hand quilting for hire. I have never used a machine in my life, so everything I do is by hand. You can click on my name to see tons of examples on my blog. I'm not expensive either! But neither am I perfect. I'm good, but not as good as my grandma.
