It's not Tuesday?

My brain is all fuddled up. I kept thinking today was Tuesday. So I sat down in front of the TV at 7pm to watch House... and Prison Break comes on! I started whining to my husband... and then he pointed out my error. :P

Another reason why I feel like it's Tuesday is because I'm thinking that Judy posted the instructions to November's "Quilt for an Hour" a day early, not TWO days early. So I'm guilty of an early start again. :)

I decided to start with the center of the blocks. I'm not sure if I put an hour into it or not, I worked on it 10 minutes here, 10 minutes there. Short attention span today, I guess. But I have all the strips and I'm sewing them together to make the center part. I sped up the production on 2 blocks so I'd have something to show (off). ;)

And yes, I'm cheating again, using up my (seemingly) endless supply of Leaders and Enders - or LeANDers... I can't remember who came up with that term, but I remember she named her quilt Abigail Leander, because it was made from Leaders and Enders. (Edit to add: I found her!)

Hopefully I'll have my head on straight tomorrow and not try to go to my quilt guild meeting a day early, or wonder why the Halloween candy isn't 50% off yet. :P

Your start looks nice. I have also started cutting for this november quilt. I have chosen thimbleberry fabric from my stash.
And Judy have made it for me in EQ with my colours. I will blog it later today. I guess you cut the squares 2". Perhaps I start with it today.

Love those blues and greens together, Leah. And your Christmas Blues in the last post is a wonderful idea! Happy Halloween!

Wow you really love those greens and purples don't you? ;) I think it is great that you are able to use up those left overs! It appears that you are going to be at "the head of the class" with November's project like you were with the first one that Judy did. You are a smart girl to figure out those center block sizes and get started early! :c)

I am sitting this one out but can't wait to chek back daily to see your progress. ~Bonnie

Your Judy quilt is going to be completely different to mine but I love it, looking forward to keeping an eye on it. thanks for the cutter advice.

Both House and Prison Break are good shows. So now you got to see both!
Leanders is a cute name, and your blocks are pretty - I like the fabric combinations. I am making a purple and green kaleidoscope - well it is a UFO right now.
