Olfa's 40th Anniversary

OLFA is celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the rotary cutter, which OLFA invented back in 1979. What's more, they even have a commemorative Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Rotary Cutter. I think it pairs nicely with the Limited Edition Ruby Stash 'n Store by It's So Emma. Then again, the Stash 'n Store has glitter, and I like shiny things. 😉

That's all well and good, but what are we going to do with these glorious notions once the photo shoot lights fade and the confetti has settled? OLFA has that covered with the Olfa Quilt Along. Make some blocks, or make them all. It's all for fun (and and a chance at some great random prizes when you share on social media using #OLFAquiltalong)!

The full quilt design (58 3/4" x 67 1/4") was revealed at Road to California this past January. Check out the introductory postThe Olfa Quilt Along will feature a new block each Monday, over the course of 40 weeks from February 4 to November 4. Keep up with the event on the OLFA blog Quilt Along Gallery Page and on Instagram and Facebook. On the Gallery Page, click on block names to open a downloadable PDF.  If you have any questions, post them in the block's social media string.
Instructions to complete the quilt will be released following the quilt along, but you can download the Part 1: Get Started instructions now. Participating designers and quilters include:
