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 Twisting Burrs Block! You will need to print out four copies of the template A page, and two of the B page per block you want to make on very lightweight paper. Fat Quarters will be fine!

For each quarter of the block, after doing all the paper piercing, join a shorter side unit to the larger unit. Add a longer side unit to the top. Two units will look like the one I have shown at far left and two will have reversed side and top units. Join these quarter blocks to complete the Twisting Burrs block!

Here are four blocks, with added colors, just for fun! This great print is from the "Luminosity" line by Paula Nadelstern for Benartex.

Happy Quilting Folks!
