Mystery Quilt

This was a mystery quilt at Needleworks a few summers ago, and I pulled all the fabrics from my stash.   I added the outer border, and maybe the outer two borders.  I used every inch of fabric...I think I've got a 6" square left.   I've quilted it with a Tuscany wool batt and flannel backing, very cosy.  I just love the turquoise in this quilt. 

I consulted with my daughter, and she thought we should leave those poofy squares looked better before being and learn.

It's crinkled up nicely in the wash...but it makes it a bit harder to see the quilting in the photos.

 There are ferny feathers in the borders, and the pink and green fabrics have fern's printed on them.
