Royal Gorge Quilt Council Fall Show





The local quilt council show is being held at the new Pueblo Community College campus in Canon City and I really enjoyed visiting the show on one of those glorious, brilliant, blue sky days we have in the fall.




This was my first trip to the campus, though Ihave driven past many times. The building and site are wonderful in the valley between the Skyline Drive Hogback and Fremont Peak on US Highway 50, west of Canon City, on the way to the Royal Gorge entrance. For many years this was the site of the terraced gardens of the state Territorial Prison where prisoners grew their own vegetables. I remember how lovely the gardens were when I was a kid and hated seeing this land lying vacant and full of weeds. When the state donated the land for the PCC campus I was thrilled, and they have certainly designed a campus that takes advantage of the beautiful location.


This wonderful huge bronze eagle statue is located in the courtyard.






Here a few photos of the quilts; info on these and more photos can be seen in my Webshots album.
