This and That

 I wanted to share some more quilty finds from my trip.  I spotted these vintage quilts at the first stop on Route 66 which was an antique store also.

 This fan quilt looks like it was probably made in the 80's, I saw it at another antique store in another town on Route 66.
 I love the embroidery details.
 I liked this picture we took in Joplin, MO, I'm really mad at myself for not looking up the quilt store there.
 I saw these quilty patterns in the tile on the Riverwalk in San Antoinio.

 These hexagons were the floor in an old hotel in San Antonio
 Our last stop was the blue whale and my camera died, so I had to use my phone!  I can't believe I forgot to recharge my battery the night before!
 I had to take a picture with the kuku bird from kuku hamburgers, another icon on Route 66.

We can't have a Friday without cat pictures (I just realized it is Friday this evening!  My hermit crabs have been living on my cutting table this summer.  I'll be happy to get my table back, but will miss having the crabs handy.  The children at school will love them though.
 My cats will miss the excitement of them crawling around.
I've been busy getting my classroom ready for school, it starts in one week!

Wow, school already. Hope you are all healed and ready to go. Thanks for the vintage quilt photos.

Love your pics of Route 66. Looks like you had so much fun. So many lovely quilts are not appreciated by families and end up in thrift stores. Makes me kind of sad.

Ah, the blue whale in Claremore, OK. We used to live not far from there (in Tulsa). Last I heard, they were thinking of turning it into a hamburger place.

Looks like a great time! I love the quilty tiles! We should be so creative on our home floors! ;)

I love the whale!!! I think a personal coffee table book (Shutterfly can do it) of these vintage signs and roadside attractions would be fun to make! You could do one with your quilt photos too.
