Neon Faux Pleated Pillow tutorial was inspired by a quilting blogger, Vanessa Christianson, with V and Co. She made a faux pleated pillow in the mono chromatic fabrics using a Jelly Roll from Fat Quarters. I am going to refer you to her blog site for great instructions, the only thing I did differently was the color selection of the jelly roll fabrics. For my pillow, I used 25 colors for this pillow front but followed her layout and sewing instructions. I loved this pillow so much I made two, and will make more but in different fabric color combinations. Thank you Vanessa for sharing this great pillow idea.
