Get Your Kicks on Route 66!

Hey, Ya'll! Look what I found - Texas in Colorado! While at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Festival, in Loveland, CO, this weekend, we walked around and looked at some of the displays before and after the show (its hard to get away while the festival is in full swing.) We found this huge quilt display depicting Route 66! It was amazing and HUGE!

Rockey Mountain Quilt Festival coordinators invited attendees to, "See the debut of this fun collection of quilts celebrating Route 66! A 60 foot long fabric map provides the foundation for these quilts from around the country that range from realistic to whimsical. This is a wonderful display and everyone will love the quilts and presentation!"

We started on one end and traveled all the way to the other end of this famous America roadway, also called Main Street of America or the Mother Road. The highway, which became one of the most famous roads in America, originally ran from Chicago, Illinois, through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California, before ending at Los Angeles, covering a total of 2,448 miles!
Here are some of the pictures from my Route 66 adventures today!

Visit us again to learn about our adventures at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Festival! While there was no table top dancing, I may have climbed on top of a sewing machine or two and "borrowed" a golf cart ... come back to find out more!
