I'm guessing that like any dried to fresh substitution, it's 1 tablespoon of fresh leaves to 1 teaspoon of dried. I'm not sure what an actual "bunch" of fresh fenugreek looks like. The variables on a bunch are huge. Taste along the way and go with your instincts!

a recipe with such an exact measurement and you're trying to measure it? As TiggyBee says, go with your instincts!

Actually, I'm not looking for exact measurements, but I don't know what a bunch of fresh fenugreek typically looks like, if their is such a thing . . . I agree, though, that I should just add to taste. I've read elsewhere that fenugreek is a somewhat bitter green, so I will certainly be adding judiciously (and salting too, after thawing and before adding, because I don't care much noticeable bitterness). Thanks! ;o)

Is it in cubes? I found one recipe that called for one small bunch (fresh) or two cubes frozen.

It's pretty much like a bunch of other leafy herbs. Quantity-wise, I'd say more like coriander than something like oregano.
