About the Workshop
Ages 16 and up
Celebrating the women who walked west on the overland trails in the 19th century, Westering Women will have patterns for 12″ block designs, each chosen for a traditional name that recalls a location along the old trails from the Missouri River to the Pacific coast. FACES instructor, Kay L. Butler will be on hand to help and give guidance.
8 Session Fee $50/members; $75/non-members
For the blocks—if you are starting from scratch—
6 half-yard pieces or 12 quarter yard pieces will give you the variety you need (3 yards). It just depends on how scrappy a look you want.

For further questions call Kay Butler 410-829-5136. We hope that you will come and join us for a fun time of learning new quilting skills!
About Kay L. Butler
Kay began her quilting journey 30 years ago when she first made an Amish crib quilt for her newborn daughter. The quilting stitches of that little Amish quilt were real toe catchers, but that first project fueled a lifelong passion of quilt adventures and quilting projects. Kay is a past president of the Heartland Quilt Guild of the Eastern Shore and the Helping Hands Quilt Guild of Dover. She is presently a member of five quilt guilds! She is an avid antique quilt collector, quilt historian and conservator and is a member of the American Quilt Study Group. She has taught in the Caroline County School for 31 years and is now embracing her retirement years teaching the next generation about quilting. Kay enjoys making patterns from antique quilts and reproduces those patterns with modern fabrics.
