Here's one of the 100 Blocks and a Giveaway.

I had fun making the blocks sent to me to test.  Each time I got one, I wondered what technique I'd be using.
They were all interesting and some easier than others.  Here's one:
this is Cindy Simms' "Around the Square".  I made mine in red, white and blue prints.  It went together smoothly.  And it is block #296 on page 73 of the v.3 issue.

If you'd like to see it (and the other 99)in your very own issue, leave a comment and perhaps I'll draw your number in my giveaway of this collector's edition.







There are 2 ways you can win:
1.  Leave a comment comparing my version and Cindy's version which you can see here .  It's the first block featured as you scroll down the post.  And while you're there you can enter Quiltmaker's giveaway for lots of other prizes too!
2.  Become a follower and let me know you are following.  If you are already a follower, remind me and you'll have a second chance too.

That's it!  Hope you win this great issue.  I will use the random number generator to draw a winner so be sure to leave me your contact info if you use anonymous to play.  Drawing will be May 9th at 9AM PDT.

Ah, I hate to compare that way. I like them both, honestly, but I tell you I am such a fan of red, white, and blue that I have to lean in that direction. I also love the print combinations you used and it's nice seeing something other than stars. Wished you would have published a pic with this in an entire quilt layout! What fabric line is that?

Both blocks are pretty but I do like the strong contrasts in your block.

I want to win and I can't tell the difference cause I can't see the one from Cindy. I am a follower too! Yippee, two chances to win. We will see.
