This modern style square in a square layer cake quilt is not only adorable, it is also pretty simple to make. For this quilt you will need the full pack of Layer Cake (the precut 10" squares) that are widely available online or at retail quilting stores.
The finished measurements of this quilt is 51.5" x 60", for this quilt I use one of my favorite fabric line which is the French General's Fleur de Noel by Moda Fabrics. I simply love the rich red color, balanced with some more muted shades of gray. It is the great color for the festive season. Nevertheless, feel free to use whatever fabric that you desire, in any theme, and color palette ;).
To make the block you will need to prepare 2 pieces of layer cake in contrasting color.
Lay them straight on the cutting mat, and stack them on top of each other
Now take your ruler and rotary cutter, measure 3 1/2" and cut
Without moving your fabric, measure 1 1/2" from the previous cutting line, and cut
So you will end up with 3 1/2", 1 1/2", and 5" wide strips
Take the 5" wide strips, and rotate the position width wise.
Now do the same as before, so measure 3 1/2" and cut, then measure 1 1/2" and cut from the previous cutting line.
So you will end up with 5 panels of fabric from each layer cake
Below is the cutting diagram if you want to see the whole picture
Next separate fabric A from fabric B (remember they were stacked together), and then put them all back again, however you want to swap the the panel 1 fabric (the 5" square), just like shown in the picture below. You may change the position of the panels, as long as the inner square is kept inside.
Then go ahead and sew them together, the square the blocks to measure 9" square
Continue the same sequence for the rest of your layer cake pieces, thus will yield 42 blocks. Then lay them out as shown below, so you should end up with 7 rows and each row should have 6 blocks.
Now go ahead sew all the blocks together and do the rest of the typical quilting routine.

The Rambling Jelly Roll Quilt is another version of easy strip quilting, that is so much fun to make, and relatively easy hence beginner friendly.
I made this quilt out of batik jelly roll strips that I got from Joann, although any fabric line would pretty much work this quilt that I reckon as one of those quilt that "you can't go wrong with".
Below is the diagram of this quilt, this is the general idea on the layout of the quilt, although each quilt will vary.
Finished Quilt measurements : Approx 61" x 74"
Supplies and tools :
35x Assorted Jelly roll strips
21x Solid jelly roll background strips
Quilt batting as needed
8x Binding strips

Today I would like to take you to my crazy scrap quilt (also known as crumb quilt) adventure.
I was quite overwhelmed with the amount of scraps that I have accumulated over time, and been looking for ways to get rid of them without throwing them away.
After scrolling through the internet and Pinterest of course, I found what is called crazy quilt or crumb quilt and I knew this was my solution.
So I took out my scraps and started sewing, and it was surprisingly fun and quite relaxing, hence I got addicted and ended up with 42x 10" squares. Check out the quilt along video to see the whole process of making this quilt on my Youtube channel below :

Basic sewing/ quilting notions

2. Square up each block in to 10" squares (make 42 blocks)
3. Sew six blocks together to make a row (make 7 rows)
4. Add borders(optional)
5. Layer, baste, quilt, bind
