SEWING YOUR OATS - DECEMBER 2024

by Karen Walker

Growing up on a farm I noticed a lot of ‘stuff’. Like the variety of greens seen as I looked across a large stand of trees or the colors of wheat shimmering in the breeze. What crawled in the dirt, swam in a pond, flew in the sky and where babies came from. ‘The Gleaners’ an 1857 painting by Jean-François Millet (a favorite of mine) was the inspiration for the larger fabric print offered in two colorways. Gleaners were rural peasants who were allowed into the fields at sunset to pick one by one, ears of corn or glean the wheat missed by the harvesters. I always considered myself a ‘gleaner’ of sorts. Barn Swallows, oats, stars in the sky and a mixture of geometric shapes all come together in my collection of sentimental harmony called Sewing Your Oats.
