*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.

Evans 201 Brindlewood Drive, Murray 2 4x4’s Star of the Bluegrass
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. The colors were chosen to compliment the colors of their lovely home. Note the reversal of colors in the two. This happens to be the next door neighbor to the Penner’s Mother’s Fancy.

Court Square in Downtown Murray 5th Street Side 4 X 4 Courthouse Steps
When we came across this pattern, we called Judge Larry Elkins. This is the perfect place to show our county’s support for the Calloway County Quilt Trail. And the perfect pattern (Courthouse Steps) to hang on the Calloway County Courthouse facing 5th Street.
