Giveaway, more SK and some extra projects

Third week of my giveaway... let me remind you the rules!

These are the rules:
- to participate in the giveaway you have to link a post of your blog on my MOP Monday linky party (at the end of this post)
- each link added will give you one entry
- links must belong to a specific range of dates
- the standard MOP Monday opening/closing time applies (the collection usually opens on Sat or Sun and is open until next Tue 12:05 pm EST)
- you can link more than one blog post (as long as it is in the range of the current week)
- the giveaway will be running for 4 MOP Mondays and the winner will be announced in the post on Aug 16 or 17
- I reserve the right to delete non-relevant links and/or exclude them from the count in the giveaway
- following my blog and commenting on other links is not required, but is greatly appreciated!!
- the prize are the 100 charm squares pictured above. Not all prints are shown and they belong to different charm packs and/or random fabric from my stash
- **forgot to say this last time**: the giveaway is open to everyone, international entries are welcome (as well as US ones)!!

-- MOP: This week new blocks --
Jennifer asked for help for a child that is going through some rough time, so she put together a design of a Superhero quilt and organized a "Fandom In Stitches Community Quilt for Mikey's Fight".
This is my block for him (Hawkeye):

Pattern available @ Fandom In Stitches

I am almost done with the blocks for my Rainbow Starburst quilt. I put them on my design wall and arranged them in the final layout... I think it's going to be very cool :) there are 4 blocks left (the corners) but with these two below I reached the number I wanted!
The fun thing about this quilt is that I didn't really had a plan until now... I just put together squares of specific colors (or crazy squares like these two) and then when I had enough to make a quilt I started thinking about the final layout. It's so good not to have a plan some time and just "go with the flow"!!!

I received my July block for the Block Swap Adventure from Linda and she received mine, so I can share them both here :)

(L) Log Cabin block, made by me for Linda,  (R) Snail Trail block, made by Linda
And here is another block for my SK project that I will also share through Summer of Stitches (on Fandom in Stitches) for the theme "I <3 books"... again another great opening line :)
Needful Things
Pattern available on "The SK project" page
And now, link YOUR own progresses below!!
Links for the giveaway: dated between July 30 and Aug 5 (included)
Rules for the linky party:
1. You can link finished projects or WIP at any stage! Every step is worth sharing
   (A journey of thousand miles is made of single steps)!

2. Link to your specific post to make it easier for others to read about your progress!
3. Spread the word and post my button or a text link (code for the button on the side bar)
4. Comment on other links!! It's always good to support each other every step of the way!! :)
