    two years ago, due to a massive stroke on the right side of my brain. left my left half of my body paralized. iwith literally two years of blood sweat and endless tears have regained every thing but the use of my left hand so,getting to my point prior to this i was an avid quilter. and i miss it has been a huge loss for me i really think that would be enormously benefical. to my recovery. not to mention to my s of well being. any helpful tips?

    What part of quilting do you like the best, piecing, hand quilting, etc.? You need a quilting buddy near by who can help you with those "2 handed" parts like cutting. I wish I lived closer.:)

    Welcome from Louisiana:) Maybe with the use of precuts or have a friend help you cut you could then piece on your machine and have your quilts quilted for you by a Long Arm. Just some thoughts.

    Welcome from Maryland! With all of your hard work and perseverance in getting to this point, OF COURSE you'll find a way to quilt!

    I like the pre-cuts idea, or finding a local guild with members who might be able to help.
