Fabric Requirements for one Twisted Blossom block:
-(8) Metro Twist blocks, 4 that face right and 4 that face left. (instructions can be found in our Metro Twist pattern)
-(2) 6 3/4" squares background fabric cut in half diagonally to make (4) 6 3/4" triangles
-(2) 6 3/4" squares focus fabric cut in half diagonally to make (4) 6 3/4" triangles
-(4) 4" squares for inside triangles

*Quick Curve Ruler

 Pair the background and focus fabric triangles.  Sew each set together. Press open.

Square up each block to a 6" square.

Place the 4" squares on focus fabric triangles and mark a reference line from corner to corner as shown above.  Stitch on line. 

Using a ruler and rotary cutter, cut a 1/4" away from stitched line.  Keep (small) triangle set. Repeat for all 4 blocks.  Press to make (4) 6" blocks.

Sew (small) triangle sets together.  Press open.

 Square up each block to a 3" square.  Sew together to create one block unit.

Layout your blocks as shown above.  After you are happy with the layout, sew the Metro Twist blocks together to create two unit blocks.

Sew blocks to form rows, then sew rows to make a Twisted Blossom block.

I’m ready to start cutting and my head is just not ready for math. In the Metro Twist pattern, the cutting layout for a FQ is for 10 rectangles to make the twist blocks. Would you kindly let me know how many rectangles and how many 6-3/4’ squares and 4" squares should be cut from each FQ. Thanks.
