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 -
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?
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!!
