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 Starshine Block! You will need to print out two copies of the template A page, and one each of the B and C pages per block you want to make on very lightweight paper.  You will also need two 4-7/8" squares of background fabric. FQ's will be fine for this!

After your units are all paper pieced. Sew together the center units as shown at far left. Add the side units to all sides of the block. Cut the two 4-7/8" background squares each in half once on the diagonal, and sew the resulting triangles to the block's corners. All done! :o)

This quilt is four blocks by five, with a pieced border! It offers some great quilting space!

Happy Quilting!
