    I was cruising the quilt tour on www.amishcountrylanes.com which is a very bad thing to do. It just gives me ideas for more quilts. The problem is that I can't find sources for some of the patterns. They are mostly the applique quilts. Do folks who are really good at applique create/design their own quilts and patterns?

    Since you have the picture, you can transfer it to graph paper in order to create the pattern.

    Well just did a sneak peak of that site. Love sites like this. Gives me color ideas for quilts. Sometimes I can start a quilt and realize my color ideas aren't right. Thanks for the link!...I think.

    Yikes! I don't want the quilt cops at my door! I could take artistic license and use some of the elements from the ones I like. That is, IF I ever decide I need that level of a challenge!

    From looking at some of the quilts my guess is they're originals. Coloring books are a good source for applique patterns if you can't draw your own.

    I have seen this site before but never taken the tour. Beautiful quilts, but that poor photagrapher. Having to make the same bed 1054 times just to photograph those quilts! I hate making the bed!

    ETA: Look at quilt #29 that pattern looks familiar wonder how that happened! :thumbdown:
