Designing Quilts

I had my surgery on Monday, and I'm feeling pretty good. I know it will take a while, so I'm forcing myself to relax and not do much of anything.
I've gotten very interested in landscape quilts in the past few months. I like applique, but I want to do something different. I've ordered a couple of books on it, and I can't wait until they arrive. One is "A Bridge to Landscape Quilting" by Mary Hackett, and "Landscape Quilts" by Nancy Zieman. I've also ordered Gwen Marston's book on four block quilts. I've read quite a bit lately that her methods are very freeing, and I've got to get out of the box I've gotten myself into with quilting. I'm tired of making quilts that look just like the picture on the pattern. I want to branch out and tell people about me and the area where I live.
I get tired very quickly, so I'll sign off for now.
Have a great day,
