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 the All Kinds Block! You will need to print out four copies of each of the units needed per block you want to make on very lightweight paper. In addition, you will need one 3 1/2" square of your background fabric per block you want to make. A Fat Quarter of each fabric should be ample!

After your units are pieced, sew small two triangle units to either side of the triangle and trapezoid unit as shown at left, using the standard 1/4" seam. Make four units like this...

Then sew each of those units to a flying geese unit...

Now piece the block, with the extra 3-1/2" background colored square as the center. Press the seam allowances of the top and bottom rows to the outside, and the center row's to the center.

Here is a simple table runner made from four blocks. You could easily make it longer by adding more blocks!

Happy Quilting All!   Marcia :o)
