  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 Illinois Blues Block! You will need to print out two copies of the template A page, and one copy of the template B page per block you want to make on very lightweight paper. You will also need one 3-1/2" square of Yellow One. Fat Quarters will be fine for this!

For this one, I've chosen four different blues, ranging from  very dark to medium blue, three yellows that are close in intensity, but different in pattern, a blue and yellow print on white, and a small blue print on white...just so you can see which colors are which, here's a Color Chart!

Following the numbering chart at far left, paper piece your units, then join them as shown at near left to complete the block!

...on to Page 2!
