Murray Woman’s Club 704 Vine St Murray 4x4 Double Wedding Ring
The Murray Woman’s Club was organized in 1907. Today, it strives to meet the values and ideals set out by the original club women. Their beautiful clubhouse on Vine is the location for many weddings, parties and meetings. The Wedding Ring pattern was chosen to honor the couples who have and still use the Clubhouse for their nuptials since the 1920s.
Kelly Farms 4518 Van Cleave Rd Murray 8x8 Shamrock
Joetta fondly remembers searching her backyard for four leaf clovers with her daddy when she was a child. She painted this colorful shamrock as a gift for her husband Jim. The four leaf clover represents their Irish heritage and is used as the logo for Kelly Farms making it the perfect choice for their “working” tobacco barn.

Schroader 2443 Murray-Paris Rd Murray 4x4 Tartan Star Cross
This beautifully detailed free standing quilt square was designed and hand painted by Teresa Schroader. Until we find a better name, I think we will call this a Tartan Star Cross.
Salazar 156 Wedgewood Drive New Concord 4x4 Road to Oklahoma
This square was a surprise gift to Kathy’s husband Chris who is the world’s biggest Oklahoma Universty fan and collects all things in crimson and cream that represent his school. It took him one day to get it hung on the side of their home. I think he liked it.
Adams 974 Murray-Paris Road, Murray 8x8 Sunflower
You may need to pull into the drive and walk around the back of garage to see this beautiful, colorful Sunflower on the barn at the back of the property. They sure have great view of it from their back deck. This barn quilt was a Christmas gift from their 3 granddaughters in memory of their Uncle Reese. It sure looks perfect on that old red barn.
