Jerry and Jamie Penner - 111 Bridlewood Murray 8x8 Mother’s Fancy
“This quilt square, Mother’s Fancy, honors my parents through the name as well as the red white and blue color! Every time I see it I think of them and how they would love this land and barn..this old Kentucky Home.” This project has inspired Jamie to research the history of the barn. More info to come.
*Unfortunately, the Butterworth barn burned in September 2012. They hope to rebuild this first barn quilt of the Calloway Co. Quilt 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.

Rowlett 4384 Van Cleave Rd Murray Texas Lonestar 4x4
Angela Rowlett was insprired by the beauty of quilt squares displayed across Kentucky when she drove back and forth to visit family between her current home in Franklin and Calloway County. She decided to surprise her mother, Glenda Rowlett, with this beautiful barn quilt in 2008. It was painted by a co worker, Tim Driskell. They used a picture of Glenda’s favorite quilt that her grandmother, Sadie Runyon had made. It is assumed that the quilt was made in the 1940’s. All that is left are photos and Glenda’s memories. Now she has a replica of the pattern and colors hanging on the side of their horse stable. It is only visable if you are driving South.

Max Rogers 6321 Hwy 94W - Mariner Compass 8x8
Max says, “My dad used to tell the story that the family who lived here in the thirties had a teenage son. One night some cardsharks got him in a game and cleaned him out. Sometime later, they came back to get him in another game. But this time, the dad came to the door. He told them “Last time you got the boy but tonite you got the old man.” That night the dad won enough from the men to build this stockbarn. I have been sure to maintain it. I chose this pattern simply because it appealed to me.”
