Jacks for SUU!!!

It's Homecoming time and that means more SUU Quilts in my favorite Red, White, and Black color combo!!! This year, I decided to make some SUU Fast & Fun Lap Quilts and today I am sharing a red, white, and black Jacks quilt! Isn't it just so fun ;)

For this version of Jacks, I used red and white prints from the Red Hot Collection from Riley Blake.  It is perfect for an Alma Mater quilt and paired with a Blossom Black Background, those red and white prints just pop!!!!   And you gotta love the scrappy binding made with the leftovers of the Layer Cake :)  I just love using up every last bit of it ;)  I have been in a bit of a time crunch so Barbara did the piecing of this one for me and I am oh so grateful :) 

And this morning, I added my SUU layered applique to the corner of the quilt.  I just love how this adds that personal touch to the quilt ;)   It really is a fun method of applique, and if you haven't done it before, there is a step by step tutorial here for layered applique :)   

When it came time to quilt this Fast & Fun Lap Quilt  I decided on an all over swirl in a rather large scale in a black thread.   I just love how it adds so much texture to this super fun quilt ;)  

And that is my SUU Jacks quilt from my Fast & Fun Lap Quilts book !  Jacks finishes at 62 1/2" x 77 1/2" so it is a great size to cuddle up in, and your toes will still be covered ;)  Oh, and if you make your own Jacks quilt, I would love to see it!!  You can share your quilts with me on social media using hashtag #happyquiltingwithmc and #fastandfunlapquilts and tag me @happyquiltingmc or you can email me a picture at

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!
