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 an Upright Basket Block! You will need to print out one copy of each template page per block you want to make on very lightweight paper. FQ's will be fine!

After your units are paper pieced, join them as shown at left. Piece ONE is the top, and the numbers go down the block in order! Here's a basket that gets it's flowers from the background! If you'd like, perhaps you could replicate some of the flowers in YOUR background fabric, and appliqué those and some leaves  in the basket as well!

Here's a little wall hanging, just nine blocks in all, with triple thin borders and Nine Patch Corners :o) Hope you like it!!

Happy Quilting People!

Here's one that Mary made!
