FO: Spun pillow

When I spotted Maritza's Spun paper-piecing pattern, I instantly clicked the buy button.

The pattern, along with a pile of orange, pink, yellow and neutral fabrics, turned into Nicke's birthday pillow! Paper piecing is so fun and gratifying, and I especially loved piecing this, with alternating neutral and bright fabrics.
Lots of favorites in this one!

And since Nicke is a major fan of all things "hearts", I added some hearts into the larger neutral triangles. I minimally quilted the center section, since there are a lot of seams.

I added more hearts on the back, because why not? I used my very favorite zipper, (tutorial is here), although I now install it with glue instead of the fusible tape.

I have a feeling there will be another Spun in my future soon!
