    Time and willingness to adapt also helped me recover after a severe concussion. Try something very simple that is driven by your favorite colors. Or make a rag quilt where matching up corner is not essential. Your brain function will recover.

    I had a stroke when my DH died and my memory suffered. Take it easy and ask for help. Start quilting with just squares or make a simple jelly row race quilt. Your brain will rejuvenate eventually, it's a marvelous organ.

    The problem may not be you nor your malady. Read some reviews on this book and more than one person mentioned that the lack in continuity of size in jelly roll strips creates many problems with this set of patterns. Also several mentions of needing/having to buy a particular ruler to have good success. You may have this ruler, but if the strips you are using aren't uniform . . . sounds like the problems may not originate with you. Don't stop quilting! Don't give up any ground you've gained! Praying for you!

    Are you cutting them crosswise?
