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.

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.

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.

*Unfortunately, the Original Butterworth barn (top picture) was hit by lightening and burned to theground in September 2012. They have now replaced both the barn and the quilt square. While the new barn is shorter and the BQ a little different- we are very happy to have this landmark back on our trail.
Butterworth 4497 94W Murray RWB Patriotic 8x8
In 1996, the Butterworth’s built their home behind a dark fired tobacco barn which had been on their farm for many years. They had planned to move the barn to another location, but the barn stayed. The doors were widened to allow the driveway to run through it. The barn houses some old farm tools and is now the main entrance to their home. They kept an American flag on the front of the barn until they decided to replace it with a patriotic design quilt square.

These two squares were chosen by the Evans family to hang on their pool house wall. They chose the pattern for the name as they love Kentucky.

Hosford 861 Squire Road Murray 8x8 Ohio Star Variation
