Madi will release Block 1 on October 13th. All instructions and pattern details will be published on Madi's blog. She'll also have YouTube tutorials for each block for those of us that are more visual learners! 

We will do another block every 2 weeks. There will be an extra final week that goes over quilt assembly and borders.
