Get Your Kicks Route 66 Quilting Cotton RJR




“Get Your Kicks on Route 66” First recorded in 1946 by Nat King Cole and later in 1964 by the Rolling Stones ~ its legend lives on with this nostalgic fabric. This would make a fantastic addition to any Memory Lane project including, jackets, shirts, aprons, cushions, bags, and , of course, quilts. Enjoy sewing with this soft easy fabric commemorating that cross country trip from PA to CA.

Bobby Troup got the idea for the song on a cross-country drive from Pennsylvania to California. Troup wanted to try his hand as a Hollywood songwriter, so he and his wife, Cynthia, packed up their 1941 Buick and headed west. The trip began on US 40 and continued along US 66 to the California coast. Troup initially considered writing a tune about US 40, but Cynthia suggested the title “Get Your Kicks on Route 66”. The song was composed on the ten-day journey and completed by referring to maps when the couple arrived in Los Angeles.
