The Trysil Bag is Finished

The bag I started in Leanne Beasley's class in Trysil is now finished:

The pattern is called "The Waverley Bag" - to me it is "The Trysil Bag" :o) I'm really pleased with how it turned out (sorry, but colours in the pic are not the greatest). This was my first attempt at needle turn appliqué; the result is far from perfect, but I had fun learning the technique. It is definitely what I will do for appliqué in the future!

This was a fun pattern to do, and being able to attend Leanne's class made it even more fun!
Happy wishes from Anne Ida

The bag turned out lovely!! Your needle turn applique looks great.

Is this an actual Leanne Beasley bag pattern or is it just a few blocks of the new quilt pattern that are sewn into a bag? It really does look so pretty :))
