We will travel through the Lone Star State in 4 quadrants, with the D/FW area as our first quadrant. At the beginning of each quadrant, I will post the cutting and piecing instructions for that quadrant (click "download" below) on the Sundays before each new quadrant, and then you will need to visit the various stops (city) that has a custom block designed by some awesome bloggers/quilters. Those awesome bloggers/quilters will also share some interesting facts about their city, some fun things to do, and of course all the scoop on any local quilt shops!
