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 Shining Hour 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 fine!

After your paper piecing is done, sew the Unit E's to the Unit D's. Sew the Unit F's to the Unit G's.  Then sew the Unit A to Unit B and that to Unit C. Now sew the two smaller corner units to opposing sides of the center Nine Patch. Add the larger corner units to finish the block!


Here are nine Shining Hour blocks with simple plain borders!

Happy Quilting Folks!
