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 Flying Fish Block! You will need to print out
four copies of the template page per block you want to make on very
lightweight paper. You will also need one 2-1/2" square of
fish body fabric.
After your units are paper pieced we'll start assembling the block.
First sew the extra 2-1/2" square of fish body fabric right
sides together to the upper left fish bottom edge. (I show it
staggered here so you can see what units I mean...yours' should be
even.) Sew from outer left edge to a point 1/4" from the end of
the square. Backstitch at that point. Press seam towards fish...
Now add the upper right fish to the right of that...
Then add the bottom right fish...
Now sew from the bottom edge of the lower left fish up
to the 1/4" point from the upper edge. Backstitch...
