This makes an 8" block and is paper pieced!

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 Whirligig! You will need to print out four copies of each of the units needed per block you want to make on very lightweight paper. A Fat Quarter of each fabric should be plenty!

After you have pieced all the units needed, join the segments as shown at left, using as always a 1/4" seam allowance...

Then join the four quadrants to make the block!
