Small projects again

  These are some more Patch Abilities monthly projects that I have completed. You get all the fabric and the topper for the stand every month.   Last year  I was doing a BOM from It's a Stitch  in the Houston, TX area.  I finished it up in February whit this one.

Then I started a BOM from Alford Inn Quilt Shop and Retreat in Van Alstyne, TX.  This year they are using Cedar Canyon - Shive Artist's Paintstik.   I have never used these and I am having fun learning about them.  A set of stencils were included for the whole year with the first kit.  I have received a white and a green paintstik so far!

This is the January kit.  The small snowflakes are stenciled on with the paint. 


This is February and the words are painted. 

 I just finished March, several days late!  The stems and two small shamrocks are paint. 

I will try to get Cat Academy and the very large flannel posted on Saturday!



  1. They are all cute, but I love the sled and snowflake one! When I think of winter, those are the colors and what I think about!

  2. Your stenciling looks really good! I've never tried the paintstiks although I did give the fabric foil a try one time. I think my favorite is the one with the sled and the snowflake, although they all turned out well. How many different calendar blocks will you have when you're done? Where are you displaying them?
