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 Rhode Island Block! You will need to print out one copy of the template A and B and C pages per block you want to make on very lightweight paper. You will also need to cut four 4-1/2" squares of back ground fabric!

Once your units are paper pieced, make four units as shown at left...

Join the remaining paper pieced units as shown at left to make the block's center...

...and using the units you just made, plus the four background squares, make three rows, pressing rows in alternate directions. Sew the rows together, and there's block one! :o)

 ...on to Page 2!
