Fat Quarters will be ample!

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 Tete a Tete Block! You will need to print out four copies of each of the triangle units needed, and just one regular square template per block you want to make on very lightweight paper. 

For this one, since the placement of the individual beige background colors is important, I suggest you  label the individual paper piecing templates with the color that is to go there! Good labels might be top beige, left beige, right beige and bottom beige!

Using the template provided, cut four center dark squares, one square for the exact middle of the block, and one square each of the four outer rim beige-ish/cream colors...

Paper piece one each of the four units shown at left, paying careful attention to your color placement of those beige sections!...

Then sew five of your squares to make the blocks center rows, having the left square be the left beige, then a dark, the middle color, another dark, and the right square being the right side beige.  Now sew the remaining two dark squares to the remaining two beige squares...on to Page 2!
