    What machine do you have? Do you have an extended base on it to enable you to use rulers?

    Gadget Girls.com is a great place to get all things related to LAQ. Golden Threads Quilting.com has Great Pantos!

    It takes More practice than you can imagine to get proficient at FHQ.

    Remember it is an education you are getting and it is a big investment in time and energy and money but well worht it. It will seem like you will never get it and then all of a sudden yes, you are. You have to relax and just enjoy doing it. Don't worry about what it looks like. Being discouraged can stop you in your tracks.

    Ballarinas weren't perfect the frist time they danced, olympic divers, artists in every medium, doctors, chiefs, All started where you are now. the begining!

    There is a world of tutorials out there. Take time to learn from them.

    There are several yahoo groups associated with LA and they always have lots of resources, advice & info. One group is "home quilting systems", and there are other groups named by machine brand such as "Tin Lizzie", etc.

    Take a look-you'll find lots of help there
