The Opryland Hotel

Quilting Inspiration: The Opryland Hotel

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!
