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 Pinwheel Star! You will need to print out eight copies of  the corner unit, four copies of the side unit, and two copies of the center pinwheel unit  per block you want to make on very lightweight paper.


 Fat Quarters will be plenty!

Once all your units are pieced, join pairs of corner quarter square triangle units right sides together, all edges aligned, using as ever a 1/4" seam. Press seam allowances to one side. Make four units like this...

Then join the two center pinwheel units as shown at left ...

Now piece the block , using the pieces we have just made. Make rows, then sew the rows together, alternating pressing directions with each addition to keep seams staggered.

Super Job ! ...and you have conquered another block! :o)
