Quilting Inspiration: The Opryland Hotel

pinit fg en rect gray 28 I have fallen in love with the city of Nashville.  I love everything about it and I’m hoping my kids get into Vanderbilt for college so I have more excuses to spend time there!  On a recent trip I had fun exploring the Opryland Hotel where I tripped over this window for a restaurant they had in the hotel.  Don’t you love it?  Can’t you see this as a quilting design?

The floral motif in this window would make a great quilting design!

I like the birds, but that isn’t the part that drew my eye.  Instead, I love the floral motif!

This flower design would make a great quilting design!


This central flower can be bent into so many things!  Here’s a border idea and a triangle setting idea.  Take a look at the shape and break out your sketchbook.  What design ideas can you come up with?  I also see a wonderful filler design in there.  Do you see it?  Let’s go play!
