    I think I'm the minority vote; I think the yellow/orange dotted fabric would really pull them all together perfectly as almost every block has a bit of yellow on the bears themselves if not their quilts.

    It is going to be a fabulous quilt any way you go!

    I like the brown sashing for a boy and the "white" for a girl. To me, the sashing makes the block "POP"

    I am partial to the brown for sashing but the blue is a second. It does make it a "boy" quilt then though. All of them are wonderful options. The wild side of me loves the orange fabric.
    5 x5 is not so good as the blocks are longer than wide. What I am not sure about is how to mix the colors. Always girl/boy/girlbear, but what about the colors of the blocks?

    thank you all so much for the feedback. I would have gone without sashing but I think you are right and I also tend to the dark brown one. Its the same "wood" print as the bedframes and could go for the floor.........and then the blue with the stars for the night sky!?

    This might not help, Like the checkerboard layout, if boardered, Brown or Light, could get wild and do a Brown/Yellow weave (brown aginst yellow, Yellow aginst brown, cornres 4 patch reverse, Gezzz i hope that made since. no matter what it's Great !! :)

    Good morning and thank you all sooooo much. I will have to work today and tomorrow, but I hope to be able to try some things out tonight. Attic window sounds also very good!

    I`d be lost without this board..................but on the other hand, without it I would never have gotten into this in the first place :lol:

    That is a darling quilt! I like the brown sashing best. It makes the colors pop out at least in my eye it does.

    I like Alienquilters idea of an attic window so much that I came up with these finalists. One time with girls, one time with boys.

    What do you think?
    the horizontal fabric of the two brown versions could also be switched

    After I posted that I liked the blue sashing, I saw the attic window and love it.

    Is there a "mathematical" way to lay this blocks out and do you think I should go with sashing or without like Champagnolle?

    the blue fabric has little stars
    Like it!
    ok, just thought I would fool around in EQ5 to lay this out...just a suggestion

    I like the brown sashing as it shows the blocks better.

    These are so so cute. I love how you used the woodgrain fabric to look like the craddle. Could you post just one close up each of just one boy and girl block so we can see the details of the bears better? thanks Love them great idea for practicing blocks.

    the blocks are very square. They dont lay flat as I am attaching a piece of batting under the blanket to get a kind of 3D effect - hopefully.....
