MOP Monday with giveaway!

Last few weeks giveaway was so fun that I decided to keep it going for a while! :)
So this is the new giveaway and few new 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) OR send me an email with your block (see later for details)
- each link added will give you one entry
- NEW RULE: if you share one of the blocks designed by me, you get 2 entries!! and if the block is one of the untested ones, you get 3 entries!! :)
- NEW RULE: if you want to share one of my blocks and you don't have a blog, you can send me an email and I will add the link to the linky party for you. My email is in all my patterns!
- NEW RULE: if you guess which city is the one depicted in the placemat on the background of the giveaway image I will add an extra bonus fat quarter ;) just write it in the comment below or send me an email (note: I will not publish the comments with the answers to avoid helping others ;) )
- links must be "new" (any date after Aug 15th is fine)
- 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)
- the giveaway will be running for 4 MOP Mondays and the winner will be announced around Sep 10
- 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 giveaway is open to everyone, international entries are welcome (as well as US ones)!!

     (this is my project for A Lovely Year of Finishes (August))

-- MOP: This week new blocks --
Another corner block is ready!! I had the idea to use the corners to "blend" the colors on two sides and I think it's working out pretty well
For August PPV (block of the month) Jennifer designed an additional bonus block that was so simple that I had to have it in my final wall hanging... so I made two of the bonus ones and two of the August ones! I am very happy that I am keeping up with this BOM because at the end of the year I will have a great wall hanging for my new house!! :)

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" :)
The Drawing of the Three (The Dark Tower series)

Pattern available on "The SK project" page
And now, link YOUR own progresses below!!
Links for the giveaway: dated after Aug 15
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!! :)


  1. What a great idea! I wish I could participate this week but I've been working on other projects. Maybe I can do a quick block tonight.

    1. That's great! But if you don't make it in time before the current link party ends, you can always link it next week! The giveaway will be open for 4 weeks! I am looking forward to see your blocks!!


Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you!
Please share your thoughts on my projects with me!
