Bee Desi with Nirmala

The Queen Bee for November is the ever-so-sweet DQ Nirmala who always always leaves an encouraging word on every single post on the DQ FB page. Over to Nirmala...

Hi I am Nirmala, very happy to be a member of 'Desi Quilters'. We began this bee in July and having a wonderful time with it. We have very very talented members in it where the exhibits are awesome....I am the queen bee of November and being a Chennai memeber, we are having monsoon season....Some ten years back we were at Nandanam near Adyar river and during the monsoon ,the river wall broke and we had to cross our street by boat..... had excellent time...So I chose the theme SAIL BOATS.

I have referred the pattern from - I just completed one block and here is the picture....

Please USE ANY FOUR SOLIDS ONLY as printed is not that attractive.

Since I want the size around 12'' to 12.5'', pls use these measurements for cutting:

You have to cut 4" squares for the HSTs
8 x 4 " for the 2 side panels
4 x 12.5 for the boat and sea

Love to see your blocks soon!!!!!!!
