I am leaving on Friday from Dallas, TX headed for Geneva, Illinois, which is about an hour west of Chicago. I am looking for awesome quilt shops to visit along the way (these will be my rest/exercise stops). I am going on US 75 from Dallas thru OK, then on I44 thru Joplin. I go on I55 to Springfield, MO, St. Louis, on to Springfield, IL, then thru Bloomington, IL. I plan to stop just south of St. Louis for the night. Any and all suggestions would be very welcome. And thanks to all of you for lots of hours of pleasure from the board.
