I finished my October Block of the Month from Two Creative Studios. As a newbie, all the points were a bit challenging and my seam ripper definately got some use today!
I used the paper piecing directions provided to piece both the inner and outer stars. One thing I really like about this BOM is that the directions are very thorough including rotary cutting, template and paper piecing information.
For more information check out the Two Creative Studios website. Directions for Novembers' block should be posted shortly, though patterns for all months are available so you can join in at anytime.
