|Raven Feathers mini quilt, 15.5" square.|
This is another (long overdue) pay it forward gift, this time for my brother! And thankfully it is the last pay it forward gift on my list! I really liked the idea of a pay it forward--so last year I signed up for two. I signed up expecting to get some surprise item from two different people, while agreeing to "pay it forward" to a total of 6 people that signed up for mine.

I never recieved anything from the PIFs I signed up for. But I kept the PIF going anyway.
I had this fun idea to make a feather using black-on-black prints, so it would have some texture, but still look like a raven or crow feather. I was only able to find 3 black-on-black fabrics at my LQS, so I decided black with grey prints would be okay.
I used the Forest quilt along feathers pattern by Shape Moth. The green fabric is a crossweave scrap I got in a scrap pack, and the black border is Kona black. Sorry I don't remember what the backing is!
I used Aurifil #1147 for the green swirls and Superior Thread So Fine in black for the border feathers.
Have you ever signed up for a pay it forward? Did you get something out of it, and did you remember to send something to the people that signed up for yours?
