Default Borders And Centers

I'm thinking of doing another Boxed Squares quilt, only this time I might put the same fabric in the center of each block as the sashing and borders.

I've been playing in my EQ5 and came up with this. Would it be boring if the centers were all the same. I've never done this before. Have you ever done a Boxed Squares like this?

I like it. The squares seem to be floating.

I like your design. The squares are fascinating on their own-batiks are like that; however, the center square, sashings and borders provide unity and allow the squares to be the star players. Nice idea. I also think the color for the sashings, borders and center is just perfect.
