Home Column Oat by Kathy Schmitz for Moda 7015-14. 44/45 inch wide. 100% Premium Cotton.
When I was a little girl, my Grandpa Bert had a farm that was the most magical place to me. While the old farmhouse was
rather humble, it holds some of my favorite childhood memories. Being a lover of all things miniature, I was fascinated by
the honey bees he kept. I imagined what a wonderful house I could make out of those beehives! There were so many
places to play as a child and I was always tickled to find a bird’s nest. On rare occasions, I could peek inside the nest
and see tiny speckled eggs. When I think of the places that feel like home, the farm always comes to mind. Drawing
these memories with pen and ink has added a subtle texture to the artwork that I love. I also chose to eliminate borders
on the images in the panel to make them easier to cut to the sizes needed for quilts and banners, stitcheries, and every
manner of project. Kathy Schmitz...
