I finished one October square (no, I'm not a super achiever, I just had a little time this morning while I was waiting for my pumpkin to bake).
I made the Sweet Gum Leaf and I will raise my hat to anyone who can make the stem like the directions tell you to! I certainly couldn't. You are supposed to start with a 1" piece, fold it in 1/2, sew it with a 1/4" seam and then turn it - good luck - I tried all sorts of ways and couldn't succeed in turning it so I did it my own way
I'll try to post pictures this week.
