Fat Quarters will be great!

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 Oklahoma Boomer! You will need to print out one copies of the template page per block you want to make on very lightweight paper. Some interesting info to go along with this one! The block is from circa 1898, and I was wondering what an Oklahoma Boomer WAS( being from Maine and all) and found this article!

Once your units are all  paper pieced, it's time to piece the block. To do this, first sew together the head and neck sections, then join the top left and right rectangles to the sides of that. Join the arm units to the body square. Join the bottom left and right rectangles to the sides of the leg unit. Now sew the three rows together, and there's one little Oklahoma Boomer!...
