While living in Singapore, I attended a class at one of the quilts shops there. We all made the same quilt using a block-of-the-month quilt pattern, The Blue Collection. Most of us tweaked the design here & there to suit us. I made my tree less elaborate & my borders less busy. I machine pieced the background & machine-appliqued all of the pottery pieces & leaves. It took me a long time to make this quilt; it now hangs in our home in a featured spot & is my husband's favorite quilt. Others seem to like it too. I made it in May 2003. It's hand-quilted.
