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:

Yes, thank you. I tried that site, etsy, eBay, Amazon , called some places, contact Jinny’s shop as well as RJR. Posted to my guild, all but searched my friends closets! I found a wine grunge that will do but had my heart set if the Chelsea subtle floral one.

Shirley, have you tried searching at www.quiltshops.com? It's a huge group of brick and mortar quilt shops that post their fabrics. Good luck!

In August I went to a taping of TQS in Denver. I hadn't considered doing the BOM before that. I saw the quilt up close and the TQS folks encouraged me: "You'll learn so much!" There were a couple of colors in the kit that didn't appeal to me so I went home and looked at my stash. I thought I'd do one square and see how it went. - The first one went well, and then I did the next and the next...I liked using my own fabrics. The earthtone colors are really my favored palette. I don't mind applique, but I knew I'd be unhappy doing so much of it on the border. My plan at first was to put pine cones along the bottom, trees along the sides and then mountains on top. I was in The Fig Leaf quilt shop in Fort Collins and the Robert Kaufmann panel fabric caught my eye as perfect for the side panels. I purchased the pine cone paper piece pattern online and did not like the pine needle part of the pattern. so I just made the pine cones and pieced them together in pairs. Once I had the sets of two, it just seemed to work best to put them in the corners. I was going to piece the mountains, but I ended up simply doing raw edge applique with a little thread painting to embellish. The needles on the pine cones are couched green cord. To prepare the pine cones for couching, I used a tear-away stabilizer on the back. I tried using a LePen marker to make the needles but I did not like the results so I went with the couching until I got tired! I almost didn't piece the back, but the leftovers spoke to me.

A Miller, Your Sizzle quilt is a great example of making it own. It turned out wonderful. Love the color palette and thank you for sharing the
the meaning of the blocks and showing the back side. I am curious. Did you start Sizzle with the idea of just doing the BOM, or did you
come up with a game plan for adding your extra block border before you started? I did my mini Sizzle first and then added extra applique after
the fact, when I couldn't decide on a quilting design to use. And after the fact I like it much better and the quilting will now just be stitching around
all the appliques in the background area. and maybe a little extra stippling. Great job, love the detail pictures. HelenW

Ta Daa! I just got my quilt back from Kathy Herman (Hearth and Home Quilting) who did a fantastic job with her longarm. This was my first BOM ever. The pine cones in the corners were adapted from a paper piece pattern by Cyrille Zellweger. The mountains on the top panel are Longs Peak and Horsetooth Rock near my home in Northern Colorado. The tree panels on the sides are from a Robert Kaufmann fabric collection called A Walk on the Path. I pieced the back with leftovers and other stash fabrics. I call it Foothills Compass. Thank you TQS!
