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 Lucky Star 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!
After paper piecing all eight units, sew together the template page B units, lining up and then stitching between the orange marks on the templates. Backstitch one stitch at the beginning and end of each seam. Now line up the orange marks at the point of each template page A unit with an inner orange mark and pin in place. Stitch from the orange mark to the outer edge, in both directions, backstitching at the beginning of each seam. Sew in all four side units in that manner. That completes the block!

Here are four blocks by five, with the locations of the two main colors swapped in alternating blocks!

Happy Quilting!
