The following information is for those artists participating in  the 2012 and beyond Route 66 Quilts exhibition. In addition to what  photos that appears  in postings below this one, you might take a look at at this site which lists by state interesting venues along the route 66 route.  We have no affiliation with the site below or approvals to directly use materials, though it will give you something to think about.
