This is tricky to answer, since you give so little information.
Do you know how to drive a stepper motor without VHDL?
Do you know how to write VHDL without worrying about stepper motors?
Do you have some hardware with an FPGA and a stepper motor attached?
Is this just a homework assignment? If so, we need more details, since, as it is, there is not enough information to help. (And that's 'help' as in 'assist', not 'help' as in 'give you a perfectly formatted answer you can hand in on Monday'.)

The last article in this pdf may help you understand how to achieve it, it is for a bipolar stepper, but you could use the same state machine concept for a unipolar motor.
