The tiny green triangles in the corners of this block are so small that I managed to cut them from leftover pieces of fabric after I trimmed the paper-pieced sections. Those triangles are 1/2-inch triangles, people! Even smaller than the pieces I blogged about back in May.
This is "L-12, Sally's Pride", an intermediate-level block that I paper pieced and then added the itty-bitty triangles using the raw-edge machine buttonhole-stitch applique method. The stitching almost covers the entire triangle -- in this case, perhaps monofilament thread would have been a better choice, but frankly, I didn't feel like changing the thread on my machine.
