I'm new here and have little understanding of some of the commonly used expressions within the quilting community.
What does the term "quarter" mean when used in relation to fabric? Does it mean a quarter of a square yard?
What does the term "fat quarter" mean?
I've seen this term used in members posts, "LQS" - I wonder if it means Local Quilting Society?
I've watched many videos online and especially love the free offerings by Eleanor Burns - other providers charge for these. Her videos appear to be previously aired television programs. After enduring her long intros what follows is a treat - a detailed tutorial.
I especially liked finding out that free motion quilters can follow stencil lines that can later be removed. This is what I want to do - I can't imagine making my own random designs like I've seen some people do on videos. I'd be all over the shop. Does anyone know if these plastic(?) stencils are available?
