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 State of Connecticut Block! You will need to print out four copies of each template page per block you want to make on very lightweight paper. Fat Quarters will be ample!

After your units are pieced, sew the template B page units together to form four pieced triangles as shown top, bottom, left, and right in the diagram at left. Now piece all the units to form the block, pressing the seams clockwise around the block to keep the center from getting bulky...

 The quilt is four blocks by five. There are thin sashing strips between the blocks and framing them, then a pieced border surrounds it all! You will note that I stuck in some additional colors to give the quilt some depth and to define secondary patterns formed when the blocks come together!

Happy Quilting All!
