Just-for-the-Fun-of-it Barn Quilt Giveaway!!

Sorry, this giveaway is now closed.

Well, I am so excited to be able to offer up today's giveaway sponsored by Classic Metal Company.  Did you see my post from last week about the barn quilt we recently hung above our garage doors?



I've wanted a barn quilt for a long time and so I was very excited to find this product advertised on Quilter's World magazine recently.  There are several different quilt blocks to choose from and they come in several different colors as well.  These are heavy-weight steel signs with a durable, baked-on powder coat finish for years of great looks.  There are also unpainted and "rusted" versions available.  They are laser cut, and we put a white background behind ours to make it stand out more.  I am thrilled with this product since it offered me an easy way to satisfy my barn quilt desire. 

I'm so excited about this product that I hit up the manufacture to offer one up to give away to you!  The folks at Classic Metal Company have generously agreed to give away a 12 x 12 quilt block for your very own! Pretty exciting, huh?  I just knew you'd think so.  So here's what you need to do to win:

1.  Visit Classic Metal Company's website right here.  Poke around under the link to the barn quilts and decide which block and color you'd like.  Then come back here and leave a comment telling me which one you'd like to win.

2.  For an extra chance to win you can post about this giveaway on your own blog, Facebook, Twitter, or whatever! Then come back here and leave an extra comment with a link to your post.

That's it!  Because of shipping charges, I'm afraid this giveaway will need to be limited to readers from the United States and Canada only.  Sorry all you other international folks.  I'll get you next time around.  I'll leave the comments open until Monday, August 5, 2013, Pacific Daylight Time.  Winner will be announced Tuesday, August 6th.  Good luck!

sonshine in the mountains said...

Well, I'll try again! I would love to have the heart block for my daughter Terrie of Music City because I think that is the one she would like best although I see she picked another one. She is the one who told me about the link. I love the way you can use these on garages because so few of us have barns these days. Her garage faces a very busy road and she has a huge number of quilting friends that would see it and want one! Thank you

kc said...

Oh, how very sweet of you to think of us & take action - and how very generous of The Classic Metal Company! I think I'd choose the Mariner's Compass because we so love to travel, that would help bless us, right? And it would have to be dark green, 'cuz that would match my front door!

Sher S. said...

Oh I'd love the Navy blue Mariner's compass. That is one of my favorite blocks to make (all hand pieced) and I've made it in navy blue and cream before so that would just be wonderful to have to put on my house.
Thanks for the fantastic giveaway.

I love the Americana Star quilt - years ago (in 1992) I participated in an online block swap on Genie. The block I chose to make was this star! Our quilts traveled together and were exhibited all over the US, in France and Japan. What a nice memory of that time it would be to win one of these barn quilt blocks.

:) Linda
