I follow a lot of quilting and patchwork blogs via RSS. Moda Bake Shop has a lot of free tutorials, working mostly with pre-cuts. Today they posted a list of the 15 most popular posts in 2015. My farourites from the list are the Gooseberry Star Patch Quilt (rated easy) by Peta Peace and the Scrappy Irish Chain Quilt (medium) by Karin Vail. The instructions call for the use of layer cakes or jelly rolls (which you can look up at weights and measures), but you can use yardage as well and do the cutting yourself.
