This makes a 6" block, and is paper pieced!

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 Delectable Mountains Variation Block! You will need to print out one copy of each of the units per block you want to make on very lightweight paper. A Fat Quarter of each fabric should be ample!

When you are done paper piecing the units, (which I labeled R1-R12, for Rows 1-12) , join the rows using a SCANT 1/4" seam, and alternating pressing directions with each addition, using the diagram at left for a guide :o) 

The quilt-shown here on it's side- is made with every other block done as a mirrored image. To do this with paper piecing, you'd have the right side of your blocks be on the TOP of the paper, rather than on the back :o) It also looks nice if you just sew block to block, without mirroring them! 

Happy Quilting!
