    Ok, this is the stack and whack that I have started that my daughter says is the worlds ugliest fabric. I have more than four blocks made, but am showing pics of only four. Haven't decided whether to set it together with black...or another color. Not sure what would make it lose it's 'ugly' moniker....

    I don't think it's ugly. May be some red would go nice with it, or green.

    I like the blocks better than the fabric before it was cut.

    I take my blocks with me to the store and I audition all of the fabrics I can think of.

    I love it! I'd go with either an orange, yellow (really bright to offset the black) or lime.
