So many people are into quilting now that you can find inspiration in just about any style.I know what you mean though.When I first started looking at making a quilt,all I could find was that country style.It's so different now.I see so many different quilts.
Try searching around on Flickr or maybe even Etsy for inspiration.
I'll throw the idea of a Durham Quilt out for your consideration... one of my great-great aunts was a pattern designer and she and her sisters used to churn out 20 a year when they were snowed in over the winter (9 girls).
