To All Quilters...a Giveaway!

I have blogged about this before, but I am going to do it again only with a giveaway this time. My sister-in-law, Debby, is a pastor's wife (of my brother) in New Zealand, an avid quilter, a quilt teacher, and an inventer. She invented the "Starwhiz" which is a Mariner's Compass Star tool. Now, I'm not a quilter and know very little about all the in's and out's of quilting, but I do understand that it is hard to draft a perfect, beautiful compass star (some quilters have been quoted as saying they never do this particular pattern due to its difficulty). Well, Debby has invented an easy-to-use tool to help make this pattern easily and correctly. Do visit her website>>>>Quiltfever and especially the gallery if you'd like to see some of her work. The picture above is of her "Starwhiz" page if you'd like to go to it for a better look at the tool and how it works.

Okay, now for the giveaway. I am Debby's U.S. "middleperson" who preps the tools and mails her orders, and I have been given permission to give away one of her tools (you can see a picture of what it looks like above). It is a $19.95 value! What must you do?
1) Leave a comment below for one entry.
2) Blog about the giveaway or leave a link on the sidebar of your blog (you may use the image above) for another entry--but you must leave a separate comment below telling me you've done this, or I'll never know/find you.

Quilters, please pass the word around to fellow quilters! I will draw a name on August 24.
