Step 1: Print out the paper foundation pattern. Cut out each of the two paper-piecing units just outside of the dashed lines of the seam allowance.

Step 4: With right sides together, layer Unit
B on Unit A. Pin in place, then stitch together using a 1/4" seam
allowance. Remove the paper from the seam allowance (on both
sides) and press this seam open.
Step 5: Carefully remove the paper from the back of the block.
