I will be traveling from Delaware to Colorado in the spring and I'm looking for recommendations of quilt shops that are on the way and close to major highways.  We are planning to stop in Worthington, OH, Indianapolis, St Louis, Abilene, Highlands Ranch, CO, Ft Collins, CO our our trip west.  Our route back home will have us stopping in Rapid City, SD, Des Moines, IA, Cinncinnati, OH and back to Delaware. 

If anyone knows of some nice shops in those areas, I would love to know about them.  Thanks!

Sharron I don't know the shops in St. Louis but if you come through MO on I-70 you can stop in at the AppleTree in Columbia. They have one in Jefferson City as well.

I've just moved out of the Black Hills and can recommend a couple of shops.  Since I'm guessing you're returning on I 90, my first recommendation is The Bakery Fabric Shop/Tri-State Bakery Studio. It's in Belle Fourche, SD about 15 minutes north of the interstate at exit 10 (SD Highway 85, just inside the border with WY).  As the name suggests, it is located in what used to be the Tri-State Bakery and the owner has done an oustanding job of building her inventory to include a variety of fabrics.  85 goes through Belle Fourche, the shop is on State Street. They've added some traffic lights since I left so I can't really give good directions, but there is a light at State and 85.  Thimble Cottage Quilts is in Rapid City, started by Pearle Louise who is known especially for her snow men quilts; the address is 902 Mt. Rushmore Rd, probably 10  minutes of so off the highway. There is another I can't remember the name of, it's parallel to theinterstate  on Knollwood Drive with a business called the Rapid City Sewing Center.  I now live in Des Moines, my favorite is The Quilt Block at 325 5th Street in West Des Moines, IA . It's not far off I 235 that goes through Des Moines.  Enjoy your trip!
