Considering....

Tumbler layout options:
This is the original stack of 1200 3" tumblers.
My mother in law wanted to start sewing right away.
She started with a 1/2/1/2 configuration.
The pattern  creates white strips in a way.
Then she laid out this: 
1/2/1/2/1
 2/1/2/1/2
which looks more scrappy and she settled on it.
I am considering my options here.
I still haven't decided how I will configure my tumblers.


p.s. giveaway still going on, comment on this POST.

The same day u first showed these tumblers I was also cutting out hundreds & hundreds of blue 3" tumblers. Then I spent some time in eq & decided to add some white creating a diamond design. Can't wait to see what u decide on...

I like the second lay out. Looks great. The first is nice but the second is a bit more pleasing to the eye. Love all the bright colors too.
