CQC's Capitol Quilt Show

 Something's coming.
Some thing great.

What's hidden in these pillowcases?

Just a small portion of the approximately
275 quilts
that will be hung at the Colorado State Capitol Building
 in Denver this summer and early fall.

The 2013 Quilt Show is sponsored by
the Colorado Quilting Council.
It will be displayed from
July 29-October 10.
It's a magnificent venue for
spectacular quilts of all colors, patterns and designs.

And if that isn't enought
this years show has been expanded to include
 approximately 45 more quilts
hung in the Denver Central Public Library
in the 5th floor's reading room.

This show has been put together and displayed every other year
since 1988.

And the best thing is that it's free.
The capitol is open to visitors during normal business hours,
7:30 am until 5:00 pm.
Monday through Friday.

The quilts on display at Denver Central Public Library are
available for viewing during their regular businness hours as well.
Check their website for hours.

If you're in the area, I hope you'll
take some time to visit this wonderful show.
There's some beautiful quilts to enjoy.
Until Next Time-


  1. Going to try to see it at the end of this month!

  3. Looks like a very cool place to see a quilt show!

  4. Hi Kyle - I actually stumbled upon this show once years and years ago when we visited Denver for the first time - it was awesome! Are you on the committee to help hang the quilts?

  5. How exciting! You must be one of the helpers!

  6. Can't wait to see your quilt at the show!

  7. Can't wait to see it. Would-a, Could-a, Should-a - That's what I'm saying to myself ;-)
    I'm happy to say I will recognize a few quilts hanging there!
