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:

Thanks for your wonderful comments. The center circle on Block 7 is actually stitched in metallic that is closer in color to the copper silk. It is not as prominent as it shows in the picture. (I think the camera is picking up a reflection off of the metallic.) I'm not totally sold on it and may pull it out and redo with invisible thread. Decided to wait until I did the layout and could step back and see them all. Getting anxious for the final block so I can do just that.

Burns50,
I love the way your blocks almost look like suede or ultra suede. It has a real comfortable look to it, can't wait to see what you do for your corner sections.
Only thing I would do differently would be to use an Inkense colored pencil in navy or maroon to shade the thread on the center circle on the third block down.
The really light colored thread just jumps out and catches your eye. I have also use Sharpie ultra thin paint pens ( can buy them at JoAnn's) to do the
same thing. Love your color selections and the gray background. HelenW

Finally got caught up! Life got in the way of quilting the last few months! Here are my blocks 5-8. I have not yet determined the placements so no corners have been attached. Photos are difficult, I am using combinations of Cherrywood fabrics, Silks, Cottonshots, and a few batiks. Looking forward to the last circle next month because quite honestly my interest is starting to wain.

Looks great Brendaintheboro! I’m excited to get back behind my sewing machine to get caught up. Moved so haven’t been able to do blocks since May. Need to complete June, July and August now! Have a great weekend! Thank you for sharing.

I am using Jinny Beyer fabrics and am anticipating a Border Print, but also contemplating a pieced border as well. The fun of both a group project and individualized choice!

well, I have managed block 7. I had to use a different fabric as I used up all of some on the block I messed up. Still quite pleased with how this has turned out.

Just another idea about which block to make your OOPS block. I would pick the pink block in row two and put it in the
bottom left corner. I like the spacing of the two pinks opposite corners. Then I would shift some of the other blocks to space and balance orange
blocks and blue feeling blocks. That is what is so fun about playing with layout. So many options.
Your blocks are beautiful. Thank you for all your help on this quilt.
