    The twin extra long, is
    5 x 9
    78 x 116
    23 Block A 22 Block B


    Blocks:
    Background Fabric ----3 yds.
    Center Chain Fabric---1 1/8 yds
    Outer Chains Fabric---1 7/8 yds

    For Easy Border:
    Center Chain Fabric 1 1/2 yds.
    Second border{ optional}
    Outer Chains Fabric----2 1/4 yds.
    Third Border

    Then it has for the Seminole border if you prefer it:
    That border would take:
    Background Fabric------1 5/8 yd
    Seminole Fabric


    Center Chain Fabric---2 1/2 yds
    Nine Patch
    Double Borders


    Outer Chain Fabric-----1 1/4 yd
    Nine Patch
    Seminole

    Finishing:

    Binding---1 yd
    Backing----7 yds
    Batting-----86 x 124

    Hope this helps: Under each of the sections it tells how to cut. So hope you can make sense of this.It is the yardage for the Twin Extra Long
