Tumbler Quilts

I finished two quilts this past week that have something in common -- tumblers!

The first is from an older Riley Blake collection by Doohickey Designs called Fox Trails -- still one of my favorite boy or gender-neutral collections! Love the color scheme and the prints! I still have more in my stash, but this might be my last tumbler quilt from this fabric line!
The second tumbler quilt is from a newer Riley Blake collection called Sasparilla by October Afternoon. I purchased a set of half yards almost as soon as the collection was released, but the fabric has been sitting in a basket waiting for me to cut it ever since! I had a break between custom orders last week because I was waiting for materials to arrive, so I decided it was time to sew some Sasparilla!

How cute is that cowboy/ cowgirl print on the back?!

I even added a few extra rows of tumblers to the back! (By the way, all the tumblers were cut using the Accuquilt 6 1/2 inch tumbler die -- one of my favorites)!

Linking up to Needle and Thread Thursday at My Quilt Infatuation and Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.
