Challenge Blocks

I am a member of the mountain piece makers quilt guild. A few months back we were asked to bring a baggie full of 5 inch squares of fall color fabrics. At the meeting, someone divided them up and we were given the challenge to make something with them. The rules were that we could add one fabric to the pattern as well as a background and a border fabric. These are the fabrics I started with.
I blankly stared at them for oh a month or so...Then about a week before it was due to show at the meeting, I started on it. The pieced blocks are paperpieced (not very well I might add) and the solid pieces are a cream on cream feather print fabric. The border fabric is a piece that I have been sitting on for a long time. Not until I took it out to work with it on this project did I realize that it is a very poor quality of fabric, I am pretty sure it is not even cotton. :/ Anyway, this is the end result:
