Border for Umpqua Leaves

oil paint stick border
This is the border I am going to put on the Umpqua Leaves quilt. I cut out stencils of one of my leaves and then used oil paint sticks to "paint" the leaves on the blue fabric. I used several different colors of paint stick and blended them. Some were irridescent and some were not.

I really enjoy using the paint sticks. The only down side is you have to wait a few weeks for the odor to completely dissipate. The paint itself is dry after about 3 days and can be heat set then. So this technique is not good for the "last minute"!
