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 a Whirling Hexagon Block! You will need to print out one copy of each template page per block you want to make on very lightweight paper. A Fat quarter of each fabric should be plenty!

After your units are paper pieced, join the two sections to make the block!

**You can also piece just the hexagon portions of these, in the same way Grandmother's Flower Garden Hexes are sewn together!


Here are twenty-seven Whirling Hexagon blocks (shown on its side) set in staggered rows. This is then squared off on the sides, then a pieced border surrounds it all. 

Happy Quilting!

Here's one that Dessa made!  Glenda's!
