Framed boxes and more

Started looking at some of my ugly unusual fabric, and thought I should do a stack and slash quilt; thought framed boxes.

Started with 11”-12” squares. Added in some of my scraps and solid strips to the blocks. Can you tell some of it is stretch denim? 

The large black & white flower and orange and pink print. Yes, rules are for breaking sometimes. There are some decorator fabrics, but they just fit in. Some of the black and white polka dot was sewn inside out, but I am leaving it. It is really hard to tell.
Need to finish squaring up the blocks to 10½”. Then work on a final arrangement of the blocks. Final size should be, 40” x 60”, nice size throw.

I'm linking over to Confessions of a Fabric Addict for "Can I get a WHOOP WHOOP?"   (or What I've been working on!)

What a great idea! Will you love your final quilt even if made from your "unusual" fabrics? It is definitely striking - the contrasts are great!

What a fun quilt! I often turn a fabric wrong side out when I need a different color in a block! Just tell people you did it on purpose!

This is fun to look at, all those fabrics. I love it. I just received a huge stack of decorator fabric. Not sure how I will use it. I only know I WANT to figure out something!

What great blocks! It's always fun to find a way to use those ugly/unusual fabrics!! Whoop whoop!!

Hey, I don't see any ugly/unusual fabrics here! They all look great! This is a fun quilt. And a great way to use up scraps. Love it!

And yeah, if anyone notices that there's some upside-down fabric, tell them it's a design element. *grin*
