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 Nines Askew Block! You will need to print out four copies of each template page per block you want to make on very lightweight paper. Fat quarters should be plenty!

After the sub units are paper pieced, sew two prop units to the center square. Sew triangle sub units to the last two prop units. Remove the paper backing from all units in the seam allowances. Starting at an outer edge, sew in as far as the center square seam. Pivot the fabric and sew across the square to the other square seam intersection. Pivot the fabric again and continue sewing to the edge. Repeat this when in-setting the other corner unit...

 The quilt is four blocks by five, and is shown here on its side. It's surrounded by a pieced border of triangles and trapezoids ...very curvy looking, though that's all an illusion :o)
