    I hate to admit it but I am at a loss most of the time with the termonology that is used here. I've been quilting most of my life and am now 69 but only recently began doing quilts other than 4 or 5 inch squares so all the terms used are strange to me. Is there a place I can go to find out what the terms you use mean? Things like DD, crumbles, etc.

    Thanks so much to all for your help. I kind of like the idea of Crumbles. And now I will be able to follow conversations with my list of terms in hand!
