Loads of Quilty Terms

If you're new to the wonderful world of quilting you've noticed we have our own language.  It's a lot like being in the military.  Everything, and I mean everything, has an acronym.   From the occasional FART to the everyday WHIMM.  Check out the partial list I have composed below if you ever get lost.  I don't pretend to have them all listed here just some of the more common terms.  

You can always check out www.abbreviations.com for more fun acronyms!
