Time for a Giveaway!!!!!

Ok, I found something recently and I just have to tell you about it. It's this amazing Block Tool.

Now I know one came out about 4 years ago.. but this one is just released and it has a lot more blocks inside. The one I have is so new.. that even the one they have on their website is the OLD ONE!!!
It is truly amazing.. I can't put it down.
It contains 160+ rotary-cut blocks. Each tab shows the block with layout.. and tells you how many of each square you need to cut.
Here is a close up.. then it tells you how big your squares should be based on the finished block size you want.... omg.. I'm getting dizzy with excitement here...
There is a Block Index in the front.. I'm giddy..
There is a section of Tips and Helpful Hints that includes yardage calculations, piecing instructions.. and so much more.

Whoa.. I think I just blacked out!

So - I'm giving one of these away to one of you LUCKY people. I truly wish I could give one to each of you... that's how much I love this thing. I want everyone to have one!

How to Enter....
Just leave a comment.. that's it.. it's that simple!

Comments will be open until Friday at Midnight (MST) and I will post the LUCKY WINNER on Saturday.
