    The double slice layer cake is super easy, and very nice. Jenny has a tut on it...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxC-0T5lXw4. What ever you choose I am sure will be wonderful.

    That tut on the chevron quilt is done with layer cakes, if you have that kind of color palette in your fabrics. I think she just did the star one using layer cakes, that looks easy also. Double slice is definitely the easiest one of the three.

    If you have a coordinating fabric with one of them, or a jelly roll pack that matches, you can do the Magic Square, this one turns out really cool, and is easy to do.

    Is that what it's called Jean? Magic Square. I'd llove to check that out while waiting for my fabric.

    Yes, that's the name. I've done it with smaller blocks than the 10" blocks, I think it makes too floppy big of a block with the 10". I did mine with 8" blocks and it turned out very good, I made two of them, one for one of Bethany's kids and one for a retirement gift, they are in my album.

    Another bonus of doing a smaller block is that you only need one strip of fabric to sash around the entire block, if you use a 10" square, you need two strips. If you are doing it with jelly rolls, that gets really expensive!
