The first thing that I would recommend that you do, is go to the Practice Paper Piecing Page.  When you feel comfy with paper piecing, come on back and try the pencil, or crayon! You will need to print out one copy of each of the units needed per pencil or crayon you want to make on very lightweight paper. Fat Quarters will be plenty!

After your units of choice are have the makings of a great quilt border...all pencils...

...or all crayons...or a mixture! You can face them all the same way, or alternate directions, as I did here...or sew them end to end! Use them as a block if you prefer, four sewn together side to side makes an 8" square...or how about adding six inches of background fabric above and below a window width strip of these, and using it as a window valance? The choices go on and on with this one!

Hope You like it!...Happy Quilting 'til Next Time!...Marcia :o)
