Texas Roadtrip QAL - Hitting the Road!

It's finally here! Cristina and I have spent the last month and a half getting ready for this trip and it's finally time to hit the road on our big, giant, virtual roadtrip through Texas! If you are just hearing about this QAL, then you can read all the details here or here or by clicking the button to the right! This will also be were I will post the links to pattern downloads and blogger tutorials so make sure you bookmark it!Untitled
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!
