    I need to make a quilt with 3 fabrics that are for a college team (Go Huskers!). It will be a red, white and black quilt.
    Have any of you made something not too complicated, but that would be fairly nice looking? It will need to be a lap sized quilt. I am leaning toward a "Twister" quilt, but am open to any suggestions.
    Thanks in advance!

    That should be really nice.

    A D9P can also look great with 3 colors.

    Road to Oklahoma would be a great block for three colors. But the Right Hand of Friendship would be more appropriate.

    BQ 1, 2, or 3 would be nice and easy if you have one of the fabrics that would look nice in a larger block. They are produced by Maple Island quilts.

    GO HUSKERS....I grew up in a small town just outside of Omaha, that was incorperated into Omaha's city limits a few years ago...so sad! Been a fan since the 60's!!!!!

    A Twister would be great using reds, whites and blacks with the Nebraska logo fabric for the borders.....maybe a block or two of the logo stuff in the quilt body but because it is so-o-o-o-o expesive, I would save it for the borders and just go with several different shades of black, reds and whites. Will look GREAT

    Disappearing 9 patch would look great with only the logo fabric in the 4 corners of the 9 patch. Would take less than doing a border. Many Nebraska fabric stores carry the husker logo fabric any more. Out of one yard you can get plenty to help make a lapsize quilt.

    Happy sewing from another Nebraskan.

    OOps, read some more of the posts, I like Julie's idea also!!

    You will get plenty of ideas from all of these talented people. :-D

    You could do the strip tube quilt from Cozy Quilts, easy to do and great use of the colors, plus you could change the color selection on the blocks for a different look. I like the twister, too.
