This post is sponsored by OLFA, but all opinions are my own.

I’ve been using OLFA tools for years now, and when asked to partner with them to release their new 45mm Endurance Blade I was excited to participate! To the left is a few of my past photos including my OLFA rotary tools, and I shared a video of switching the blade on the Splash earlier this month too!

OLFA is celebrating the release of the Endurance Blade with some exciting events too!

On April 27 & 28, during QuiltWeek in Paducah, KY, OLFA is creating an opportunity for you to test the blade, while cutting quilts for kids that need comfort the most. Quilts for Kids is a non-profit, that donates quilts to children’s hospitals and shelters across the country. Every square that is cut with the new Endurance Blade will be collected and made into beautiful quilts by volunteers!

There’s also a Quilt Cruise Sweepstakes beginning on April 17th. Mark your calendar and check out the details HERE.

Trimming Improv Blocks

Last week after receiving the new tools, I was working on sashing some improv blocks that I’ve been working on the last couple of months. We worked together well, with little need for pressure as the blade cut, and cut, and cut! I always love a new blade in my rotary cutter, but this felt even smoother than usual!

The best way I’ve found to size improv blocks, is to sew plenty of fabric around, then trim down using a square ruler to the size that you like. I have blocks ranging from roughly 6″ to 10″, and not at all square usually! I sewed lots of white to the edges to set the blocks, before trimming to 12 1/2″ square. I also like to have my mat accessible from more than one side of the table – this way I can walk around the mat instead of twisting the block.

I’ve decided to test the blade by using it every other time I cut, with my original blade. This Splash Cutter with the Endurance Blade in it is marked with a piece of fabric in the handle. I’ll report back with results in a couple of months!

OLFA Tools

You know I’m already a fan of the Splash rotary cutter, and having a longer lasting blade is great! Splash is great for medium to heavy-duty projects, and can easily cut up to six layers of quilting cotton. I use it all the time for cutting strips, and crosscut squares/rectangles in multiple layers at once. It also cuts more than fabric, but I suggest keeping a second blade handy for anything but cotton.

You can pick up your Splash Rotary Cutter HERE on OLFA.com and at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, or ask for it in your local fine quilt shop.

I usually switch my rotary blades at least once a month, depending on how many projects I’m working on – which definitely adds up. I’m really excited to put the Endurance blade to the test! The Endurance blade is made from expertly-honed tungsten tool steel with proprietary metal chemistry, it’s designed to cut twice as long, and fits the OLFA 45mm rotary cutters we already own.

You can pick your new Endurance Blade up on OLFA.com and at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, or ask for it in your local fine quilt shop.

I will admit, I had been a little skeptical of the folding mats. I hadn’t seen it in person, or had the chance to put it to use. Seeing and using it now, I’m a fan! The folding mat is perfect for a retreat, or classroom situation, when packing space is at a premium, but a mat is necessary. Also in my own space, next to the machine it’s great too!

The curved fold means you can cut anywhere on the mat and have the results you expect from any cutting mat. The actual fold, is secure and durable too, which puts my mind at ease for future cutting mat purchases.

    I have no idea. I have tried to use a rotary blade sharpener, which worked OK, but I didn’t feel like the sharpened blade lasted as long as a new blade. I am interested to hear how the endurance works after a month or two. Or, I could win this giveaway and try it myself.

    I just bought a new Splash and am using the blade that came with it. Im sure its only been about a month and I already feel like I need a new blade. DH even said ‘didn’t you just get that?’ I haven’t done a lot of cutting with it, but it sure is easy to catch the blade on the corner of your ruler which cant be good for it!

    The Endurance Blade sounds wonderful! I’m currently working on a project using Thangles and I will be changing my blade after squaring up. Cutting through paper dulls the blade.

    Thanks for a chance to win.

    Uh Oh! I’d rather not say since I realized just the other day that the current blade is leaving those annoying thread connections (you know–where nothing got cut cleanly) about every 2 inches or so. Oops!

    I changed my blade about 4 weeks ago. I never write it down, but I know I always use it longer than I should. Every time I change it, it’s like cutting melted butter and I wonder why I make myself suffer with a dull blade. I would love a new longer lasting blade.

    It has been too long since I changed the blade on my cutter I am sure. Getting the uncut thread every few inches is a sign it’s time. Thanks for the giveaway.

    About a year ago I decided to change my blade every time I started a new quilt–now it’s kind of a little ritual for me. I’ve been trying to make a quilt a month, so every 4 weeks or so.

    I don’t remember when I changed it…. I usually wait until it starts skipping spots before I change it. I keep a separate cutter for use with paper – cutting templates and paper piecing so that helps. Would love to try the new blade. I love my Olfa cutters

  42. Erin M Monfort-Nelson March 23, 2017 at 3:12 pm - Reply

    Okay, so the honest answer is that I don’t remember how long the blade has been on any of my FOUR rotary cutters. I use them all for different things and randomly change the blades when I notice they are dull or chipped or something… very bad behavior on my part… I could use stickers to put on my planner like I do with the dog’s flea medicine, a little reminder to change the blade. I should probably sell that idea, now that I think about it.

    I think about 2 months, I know I should change more often, but I tend to keep one until it takes a lot of pressure to make a cut. I’d love to win a new blade and cutter! Thank you for the giveaway!

    Hi, I have had my blade in for about four months. I use different rotary cutter for different projects so they seem to last longer. I have tried other cutters, but Olfa is by far the best. Have you tried the sliding one? You might not have to walk around your table as much. I hope the new blade works. Great giveaway. Thanks for telling us the truth on the projects you tried.

    My blade has been in my cutter for about 1 month though I only had time to cut a few strips for a quilt with it. There is still plenty of cutting left in that blade. I like to keep a stack of new blades handy. there is nothing like the feel of your rotary blade just slicing right through your fabrics.

    I’m pretty good about changing my blade. I don’t keep track of time but as soon as I feel it’s getting dull I change it. And I feel fine cutting up to 12 layers so I’m sure curious about the new blade.

    I hadn’t heard of the Splash cutter…and now the Endurance…hmmm – I definitely have to think about the Splash cutter. As for changing the blade – I’m so bad at that – I normally don’t change it until I have 3 or 4 placed I have to go back and snip. I know I should change it more often, but it’s such a pain…so maybe that Splash is what I need!

    I currently have an endurance blade on and I think I put it on about a month ago. It’s going OK but it’s hard to compare if it is doing better than my usual blades by this point since the amount of cutting I do fluctuates so much, so I love that you’re doing a much more scientific test!

    I started quilting one year ago. But in such a short time it is not cutting clean. I’m not sure if it is the cutter or my technique. It only cuts cleanly only when the ruler slips LOL.

    I switch mine about once a week as the blades dull so fast. I do lots of scrap cutting using the Stripology ruler and making set sizess, so I wear them down fast. I don’t think they are as sharp as they could be coming out of the pack.

    Interested in trying both the Splash and the blade! I think I changed my blade at the end of January, but I haven’t done much cutting lately, so I could deduct several weeks from that!
    Though I often think my blade is just fine, until I change it and realize that I never notice how dull the old blade is until I’m cutting with a new one!

    I have several rotary cutters so I get confused as to when I change the blades. I always keep extras on hand so than when the whichever blade begins to appear dull or has a nick in it I switch it out. I enjoy all my Olfa quilting tools. Will be interested to hear how the new longer lasting blade works out.

    I tend to leave them on too long, until I am cursing that it is cutting poorly. Usually it is about 2-3 quilts, but I know I should change more often. Like you, I love the feel and ability of a new blade! I look forward to this new blade, sounds good to me!

    I try to change blades often. BUT…The last time I changed blades on a product that was not an Olfa, I never got the blade in correctly and it was a disaster! I now purchase Olfa products and only Olfa! There are so many brands of cutting implements, but I won’t waste time or money on them. I love Olfa products and am brand loyal!

    I vowed to change the blades in both cutters I have on Jan 1. I did change one but thought maybe I can use the other a little longer. Now I have had the dull blade in 3 more months than I wanted to and it has been in the cutter for almost a year….yikes that is bad!

    I just changed it after cutting all the 3.5″ squares for my twin size Quilt. Piecing and trimming with the new blade. I could have continued to use the old blade but cutting through seamed pieces with my arthritic hands would have required more pressure than I was was willing to have to do. Have always used Olfa and am anxious to to try out the new endurance blades.

    I purchased my Olfa cutter last year sometime and it still has the original blade on it. IDK why, but I never change the blades in my cutters until they just don’t cut fabric anymore. Maybe it’s because I’m too cheap to keep buying the blades every time I turn around! Haha!

    I use the Olfa Splash cutter. The blade was changed about 2 months ago. It hasn’t been used in the last month because my husband and I were traveling.

    Probably a couple months. I expected to have to change it three weeks ago when I was on a quilting retreat. But since it didn’t give me any trouble, I kept using it. I never change my blade until it fails to cut through all the layers of fabric a few times in a row. If it’s annoying me, it’s time to change it.

    I have only had my blade on for about 3 months and have cut about 2 quilts worth. But the blade has not been cutting smoothly from about half-way through this time. I have to use extra pressure and sometimes cut more than once to get a clean cut. I don’t have the money to just get a new one, considering this one wasn’t that old when it started to not work properly.

    I’ve had the same blade in my Olfa cutter for 2 quilts (plus one LARGE paper-pieced Jinny Beyer quilt) and several more projects cut… yes, it is probably time to change it.

    I changed my blade about a month ago. Since getting a new cutting mat that fits the entire top of my cutting table, I find I have to change my blade more often, as the surface of this mat seems to require a really sharp blade. It is a green self-healing mat, but has a firmer surface than the Olfa mats. I’ll be curious to see how these new blades hold up on my mat.

    I have three rotary cutters that I use and, because of that, I can never remember when I changed my blades! I just wait until I notice that they aren’t cutting well and then I change them. The idea of a longer lasting blade is VERY exciting! Even better would be a reliable way to sharpen the blades. I find it so wasteful to throw them away, so I don’t. I just keep them in a tin waiting until the day I try taking them somewhere to see if they can be sharpened.

    Funny story. I lent my splash cutter to a young woman who I was teaching to quilt. I knew the blade would soon need to be changed so I sent her a package of blades as well. When I got the cutter back and went to use it, I noticed that there were soon so many threads and shreds everywhere. It turns out that when she changed the blade, she mistakenly put in two blades instead of one. You know how the oil really makes them stick together. What a mess it makes to use a double blade! Oy oy oy!

  136. Cassie G March 24, 2017 at 4:32 pm - Reply

    I think I put this blade in back in November 2016. Have noticed lately that it’s not cutting all the threads, probably would be a good idea to change it…

    Was about to proudly claim that I have a “brand new” blade in my rotary cutter, but now that I think about it, no. It’s been at least two, maybe three months since the current blade was brand-spankin’ new. Still, I call that blade infancy compared to how long I’ve gone between blade changes in the past. Love that blue rotary cutter, BTW, am putting it on my wish list for the color alone.

    I just purchased one of the new Endurance blades this week and promptly put it on my cutter. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I am pretty good about changing my blades often – at least once a month – because I like quick clean cuts. This new blade required hardly any pressure and went through 4 layers of fabric like butter! I will be using these blades from now on, keeping my last regular Olfa blade for cutting when I use paper triangles. Guess I should pick up a second handle for that.

    I’ve never replaced the blade- thinking now that it might be a good idea! I’ve been using this rotary cutter for almost TEN YEARS! It takes several passes to go through one layer of fabric. But at least I can’t cut myself on it!

    I just bought the splash and have only cut one quilt with it, would love to try the new blade.

    I’ve actually been pretty good :) Since January, have made 8 quilts (mostly throw and crib sizes, but one twin-size) and am working on #9. I changed my Olfa blade about 2 quilts ago, which would be just before the twin size quilt. Thanks for the chance to win !

    I went on a quilting retreat in early March, and I changed it then. But before that…it may have been 6 months!

    I can’t remember the last time I changed my blade, maybe November? I just cut out a quilt with 1038 pieces plus I still have the sashing to cut so my blade is toast.

    My blade is relatively new because I rolled over a pin and finally got so frustrated with the skip that I changed it :(

    Last time I changed my blade was 2 weeks ago when I started cutting out fabric for a new quilt!

    Hi,
    I change the blade each time there is a tiny thread not cut ! So it depends if I am doing a lot of cutting,!
    I buy a lot of blades !!! Chantal from France !

    My last change was a week ago for a Jacqueline DeJonge Retreat. Before that it had been at least 6 months. and probably 2 quilts cut.

    I’m not really sure, but at least six months. I’ve barely used it in that time though, so it’s not as bad as it sounds.

    Just put a new one in about three weeks ago, but have been giving it very heavy usage for making my new quilt. Still going strong, but don’t expect that to last as long as I’d like!

    Mine is about 2 months old now…which is BAD because I use it every day for many hours! It has nicks on it because it is not cutting all the way thru the fabrics! Tomorrow….yes…I will change it tomorrow!

    Really? I have to admit this?! —- I use it all the time – my mat has some deep gouges in it – and I changed my blade last summer — so I am OVERDUE! —

    It probably is time to change it. About a year (eek!)

    Umm, I’d say at least 6 months…..shame on me.

    Over six months, oh my!

    I don’t even have my own rotary cutter – I borrow my friend’s.

    I would have to say about 6 weeks ago cause it was right before I moved……hope it works great
