    after seeing Champagnolles "bear in bed" I wanted to make one too.
    I got 24 blocks, four each in the colors green, red, yellow, purple, blue and bright yellow. Two of each "girls", two boys.
    Is there a "mathematical" way to lay this blocks out and do you think I should go with sashing or without like Champagnolle?

    granny

    the blue fabric has little stars

    how about other fabric for sashing?

    I just had the picture that Champagnolle posted on this board. Search for "bears in bed".
    I made different 6"blocks and it is a great way to try out different patterns. I got most of them from quilterscache. The Embroidery design I got from allstitching.com. Originally the bears where carrying boards in their paws and the designer was so nice to remove them for me. Like I figured one gets the impression now that they lay under the blanket.

    Unbelievable! How cute is this?

    Layout 4x6 or 6x4 or you might make one more bear under his quilt block and have a 5x5 layout?

    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!?

    Oh - absolutely adorable!

    How about an attic window? Use a dark brown for the horizontal rows, a medium brown for the vertical rows, and a half square triangle (with the dark brown on the bottom left and the medium brown for the top right) for the cornerstones.

    Here's an example of what I'm talking about only going to the left instead of the right:

    I like the blue and the lightest background print for showing off the blocks most effectively. I'd do the boys in the blue and the girls in the light print. Or if you use the brown or the tan make the sashing wider than what you show in the picture. It does look really nice as well.
