Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Barn Quilts Rock - and a GIVEAWAY!!

Hi, all!

Friday!  Don't you just love the sound of that?  The beginning of a long holiday weekend for many of us, the start of summer activities - so much to whoop about!  Are you ready to get your whoop whoop on?  Let's start!!


*&*&*&*&*&*&*&*

Because of dealing with all the Hands2Help administrative work (FYI, this is the week when everyone links up the quilts they made for the Challenge - if you haven't already checked them out, click here to see all the gorgeous eye candy!) I don't have any personal finishes to share, but that's ok...because....


I'm going to add one more fun thing to your weekend - 
a giveaway!!! 



You may remember that when I was in Paducah, I met the gentleman who owns Classic Metal Company, which produces really cool metal barn quilts and a whole host of other products specifically designed for those of us of the quilt-y persuasion.  He donated a beautiful barn quilt for the Hands2Help Challenge then, and contacted me shortly after to ask if I'd like to do a giveaway of a new product on the blog.  

Hmmm... let's see..... great quilt-y product and a giveaway?  
Heck, yeah!!



First of all, let me tell you a little bit about Mark's company.  He and his wife Danira run this small family business, with the help of their border collie, Jack.  Apparently Jack is the motivational coach and cheerleader!  


Their barn quilts are cut out of 14 gauge steel, then "painted" with a powder coat process that gives them a hard, durable, long-lasting finish good for any climate.  Almost all of their products are made in the USA, too!  



I seriously love their barn quilts and related metal products.  I have a barn quilt hanging next to my front door, and one of the ruler holders on my worktable holding rulers and clipboards, and I just purchased one of the "A Quilter Lives Here" signs.  



But today I want to share a new product that Mark has come up - you're going to love it!  Take a few minutes to watch this video and you'll see what I mean.....


This is perfect for a nightlight or for a pretty decorative accent in your home - and what a great gift for a quilt-y friend!  Keep in mind Christmas parties, too - this would make a fun swap gift (note to self: order one!) You could wrap up your gift shopping right here!  

There's a great variety of different light panels for your LED base, too - Americana Star, Carpenter's Wheel, Feathered Star, Hunter's Star, Mariner's Compass, and Ohio Star blocks, and inspirational sayings too - "Home is Where The Quilt Is" and "Stitch Together Friendships".  And of course, "A Quilter Lives Here"!


And here's a reason to whoop it up today - 
I have one of these LED light bases and three light panels 
to give to one lucky reader!!


Here's how to enter - choose one way, or more for multiple entries!

1.  Hop over to Classic Metal Company's site, then come back here and comment about something you like! Be sure to leave your email address in your comment, also, so I can reach you if you win!

2.  Visit their Facebook page!  "Like" them if you want to stay up to date on all the new and cool items they have.  (Leave a comment here saying you visited the page for this to count.)

3. Be a follower of this blog!  New followers are always welcome! (Leave a comment letting me know you follow.)

4.  Link up for Whoop Whoop Friday below!  You don't have to have a finish, just something you're doing a happy dance about this week.  No comment necessary, I'll grab your entry from your link!

 Easy peasy, right?  The giveaway will remain open for entries until Wednesday, June 1st at noon.  I'll announce the winner next Friday, June 3rd in the Whoop Whoop Friday post - giving one person a great reason to whoop it up!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

And now it's time to share - 

What are you whooping it up about today?


What's got you dancing a little happy dance?

Share!  We want to dance right along with you!

And it's always more fun to dance with friends!

This party will stay open until Wednesday, June 1st
at 11:59 am.

Hope to see you there!

Hugs!

Sarah

  2. This is another amazing give-away, and as I am in New Zealand, like Kate in the U.K., not sure if it is international. If so , my choice would HAVE to be the Mariner's Compass napkin holder. I named my blog with thoughts of a very dear friend who was in the UK Navy in WW2, mine laying, he was awarded a DSC, and for his 90th birthday I made a 'Mariner's Compass" wall hanging, and then my blog had the name " All Points of the Compass".All those beautiful quilts for the Hands2Help, generosity and distance has no limitations, and such a variety of colours and designs.
