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 an Ebb Tide block! You will need to print out one copy of each template page per block you want to make on very lightweight paper. Fat quarters should be plenty! You also need four white 3-1/2" squares! These four blues are used in one block...



Paper piece all units. Once that is done lay out the units shown at left and sew them together to make the star unit...



Now sew one each of the side units shown at left...


Sew the SIS-B/Side B unit to the left of the star unit.  Then sew the remaining SIS A unit to right end of the SIS-B/Side C unit. Now add that to the bottom of the block to finish it off!...on to Page 2!
