The other side of the tracks...
I was told that if I visit French Lick, I wasn't to miss seeing the French Lick Springs and the West Baden Springs resorts. So, on our way out of town...
Come on, as quilters, don't tell me you don't look at floors like this and say to yourself, 'Hmmm... wonder what that would look like in a quilt? And I like that color combination- I'll have top try it in a quilt." It's all about the quilts. Even though these mosaic floor tiles are circles, I think this would work with hexagons. How unusual would that be? No, I'm not going to try it, but I have seen some insanely time-consuming hexagon quilts being sewn up and finished out there- you know who you are.
This following picture is actually squares. That I might try.
I would love to try this one as a border. Sorry it's on it's side- the photo program is giving me fits. It's all Lisa's fault 'cause she could have set me up when last she visited but no...
The next couple pictures are of of the West Baden Dome in the West Baden Springs Resort. It is truly impressive. The kinda impressive that makes you go, "whoa" when you walk through the door. Fun to watch the looks on everyone else's faces when they come. Its a universal reaction. Each of the french doors/windows open out to the atrium. The atrium space is surprisingly quiet.

And then the funny occur ed to me. I felt like an impostor, like I should slink around behind the pillars. I smelled of smoke from the fireplace. But take a gander at the differences. No wonder it was a culture a shock.
