This triangle was interesting to make. Most of the block was hand appliqued, with a little bit of machine applique to make the tip of the needle. The fabric is Amy Butler's Peony in Lime from her Lotus line, also from my cousin's stash.
This block reminded me of Maui and the 'Iao Needle. It's a natural rock pinnacle in the West Maui Mountains. The green of the fabric seemed to be a perfect match to the green needle.
