Default Miniature Quilting Patterns

I'm about to make my first miniature quilt - an Amish Bars - and whilst I'm happy with cross hatching the centre, I want something different for the borders and corners. I have spent the afternoon looking online for patterns and books, but no go. Can anyone point me in the direction for sites or books of miniature quilting patterns please?
Thanks.

Helen.

There was a magazine called Minature Quilts but I haven't seen it in awhile.

I have just ordered a book for miniature quilting designs, and haven't received it yet. It is available on Amazon, and is called "Think Small, Over 300 Miniature Quilting Designs", by Shirley Thompson. Couldn't you also just use a copier to reduce the size of a larger design you like?

How big is the quilt? I've done some that were 6"x9" and required 1/8" seams. That was small enough to use the fancy stitches on the Pfaff 1475.

I remember seeing a book called "Little Quilts". Maybe you could find it online.

Thanks. At the moment I think I'm going to have to try and reduce patterns I already have. I've just checked Amazon, and with the postage and exchange rates at the moment, the book would cost me about $73! Well out of my budget, much as I would love it. Have added it to my wish list though for when family want to know what I want for Xmas/Birthday, or the budget improves.
