Perhaps you remember reading about my paper piecing adventure back in October. Well, I finally made something out of that Akita block!
Here is the tote bag it finally became. All the fabrics in the bag are from those left over from the original square.
It was also my first time making a quilted project with triangles. I had a bit of a challenge with the straps. I think if I make another tote bag in the future I will wait to sew the tops of the straps down until after the lining is sewn in.
But other than that I think it came out well for my first bag.

I remember first seeing a realistic portrait quilt in a quilting book 2 or 3 years ago. I thought the quilts were beautiful, but it also seemed very hard. This was before my first quilting project though. And after having done a few quilts I guess I have gotten braver. :)
This is my favorite quilt so far, and the one I most enjoyed making. I hope to do another soon!
