Paper Piecing

I've wanted to do some quilting with Akita images for some time. Patterns are hard to find but I came across this paper pieced Akita.
The square is made with a pattern by Linda Hibbert. This was a bit of a challenge for a first-timer! It's was a new technique for me, and I had originally intended to make 4 of these, in different colors, as placemats. I think however that I will content myself with one. Not sure what this square will be made into yet. (It's approx. 8" square) But I do know that if I ever paper piece again, I will make sure the pattern has bigger pieces!
I like my paper pieced Akita though. Think she looks a bit like Bella?
