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:

TOPIC: Month 4--Sizzle

Month 4--Sizzle 09 May 2019 06:32 #145677

What Becky means is, she added the background corner blocks to the big circle before she pieced in the small center circle. She feels this protects the circle’s bias edges.

I did it that way on one of mine and on the other, I added the corner blocks after the small center circle was pieced in. Both methods work. Take your pick.

In the video about sewing the small center circles you mention you already sewed the corners of the circle. I don't know what you mean by that. It's at about 3:05 into the video. Please explain. I've watched it three times and I don't understand. I'm a little frustrated with trying to sew such a small inset circle.

Becky made a few minor changes when she wrote the actual pattern, this must have been one of them. I don’t look at the fabric requirements list now, only the pattern so I didn’t see where you were getting the Beetle Green—now I understand your question. Thanks for explaining.

The fabric requirements indicate that Beetle Green would be used in Month 4. I followed Month 4 directions, no Beetle Green. Just curious why it was listed as such in the fabric requirements Thank you

Month 4, Warm Kit, there is no Beetle Green used. The greens used in Warm are Fern and Lime.
