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 Gretchen Block! You will need to print out four copies of the template page per block you want to make on very lightweight paper. Fat Quarters will be plenty!

Once your units are pieced, sew together opposite pairs, using a SCANT 1/4" seam. Piece the block by joining four corner units. All Done!!

The quilt is four blocks by five with triple thin border strips to frame it :o) This one would be striking in ANY two colors!

Happy Quilting Folks!
