    Everytime I set up to start my first quilting project something comes along and stops me, SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Frustrating.
    First time I tried to start my Granddaughter became ill. Second time I was all set up and Daughter fell and hurt her foot and couldn't walk, so off to the local emergency department where they said she had fractured her 5th metatarsul in her left foot so she ended up with a back slab Then we had to drive her to work as she is unable to drive then I had to drive her to the fracture clinic which took several hours, now she is wearing a support boot.
    I can not see me getting started for at least another two weeks. Oh Bum.
    Never mind people are more inportant, but one of these days I will get started.

    When you are able to get started, that quilt will be beautiful because you will have made it a dozen times in your head and have all of the bugs ironed out!

    Hopefully the frustrations are waning, things are much calmer now, Daughter and granddaughter had to live with us for the first few days so we could help out but they have gone back home today. So I feel a bit of sewing coming on.

    Sorry for all the frustrations!!! Why don't you buy some fat quarters, cut them up into 2" or so squares, and hand stitch them together?? That'll give you SOME satisfaction of being able to start a quilt and you can do it in waiting rooms, etc.

    Hope your daughter heals nicely. The quilting will come when you can concentrate on it.

    Select a project that you can take along. Could be marking shapes, cutting them and even (using the bad word) hand piecing or hand applique.
    bindings can be stitched while waiting etc etc etc.
    Or take the time to read over instructions and make notes of important parts to remember.
    Sketch out the plan for a new quilt.
