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 Pumpkin 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 will be plenty! 

Once all your units are paper pieced, join them as shown at left. Remove the paper backing...

Cut one 6-1/2" square, and one 6-7/8" square of your pumpkin block background fabric. Cut theses in half once on the diagonal to make two half square triangles of each. Sew the two 6-1/2" triangles to the pumpkin block's top and bottom edges, using as always, a scant 1/4" seam Press seams towards triangles. Sew the remaining two half square triangles to the Pumpkin's left and right, again pressing towards triangles...
