Leah refers to this week's pattern as Pointy Paisley, but I prefer to think of it as Pivoting Triangles. The idea is to start with a triangle, echo it a few times and then pivot off in a new direction and create the next triangle. The big difference between this pattern and the others in the Paisley family cluster is that the lines are straight.

I had to do a bit more travel stitching with this pattern, as well as "filler" spaces. You can see this clearly on the backside of the piece. Those aren't hesitation beads at the points, they are thread building up by returning to the same point over and over again.
When I first saw Pointy Paisley, it didn't grab me as a pattern. However, once I finished my practice panel it had grown on me.
