Join us on a TQS exclusive 12-month creative journey with Becky Goldsmith as we bring you "Sizzle," a stunning quilt designed especially for TQS.

Each month we will provide photos, detailed directions for a portion of the quilt, and full-size patterns. Becky has also created a selection of "how-to" videos to guide you along the way.

Let's use this Topic "Sizzle Show and Tell" as a place to show off your beautiful Sizzle Blocks. That way, you know where to come to see what everyone is doing.
The topics that apply to each month are a good place to ask questions or make suggestions for each block.
AND when you post your photos to Social Media, like Instagram, Facebook, etc., use either of these hash tags so everyone there will be able to find our wonderful work:

I have tried this. Fortunately, I had a printout that was the right size (1") and I used it to make my vellum sheets. We will just have to see what happens in the future.

Sorry, no such problem. Have you tried turning off both the printer and computer, then restarting them both? Sometimes that works to clear glitches.

I print the instructions for every new block, and then I make photocopies of the pattern page onto vellum. I have a basic HP 110 printer. It works fine.

Wondering if anyone else is getting this message when trying to print the paper piecing sheets.

"Unable to convert PostScript file".

Not sure how I was able to print it before!!!! Technology......

Here are my 2 May blocks. I'm doing 2 quilts (1 with Kim Diehl fabrics and the other with Jeanne Horton Fabrics). After last months block, these were a breeze :)

Scrapquilter2, on page 20 of the General Instructions Becky shows how to cut out the Block Corners from 10.5” x 13” rectangles. I am out of town currently so can’t do a video. The instructions should help.

I have finished my 5th block.

Would it be possible for Becky or Barbara to do a video on how to cut out the outside squares? My mind just can't seem to grasp how to do this!!

I like the gradation better than the strips too. I think there are enough scraps as the kit was so generous that I"m going to do like the warm version too.
