Sizzle is the quilt that I spent months designing and making (in 2 colorways!) last year. It is pieced on foundation papers and is a lot easier to make than you might think, as long as you follow the directions!
I made videos of each pertinent step as I made the quilts. It is my sincere hope that the pattern, instructions, and the videos answer any questions you might have during construction.
I look forward to hearing from you as you make your Sizzle quilts!
Sharon McCrosky sent me the following email and I’m going to share it with you as written:
I was delighted to receive your Magical Unicorn Quilt Pattern. My nephew’s little daughter, Zoe, eighth birthday was coming up. So on July 1, 2018 , I just finished a Monster Quilt for her little brother and received your pattern in the mail.
I was progressing with the quilt when on August 15th I fell walking my little dog and broke my right shoulder and left foot. This was tortures: no sewing, no quilting, and no handwork. The mending has been slow and painful. You can understand how delighted I was too start back on the Unicorn quilt. Today!! I mailed it to a very patient little girl, who celebrated her eighth birthday December 27. I can hardly wait to see pictures of her beautiful smile when opening her special gift.
Thank you so very much for producing such an enchanting design. Now finishing Welcome to the North Pole. Thank you, Sharon McCrosky
Sharon also made a pillowcase for Zoe from unicorn fabric! That is one lucky little girl.
Sharon, I’m glad you have recovered and are sewing again. Thank you so much for sharing the story of your quilt with us!
