    That's just a few that i could think of right off the top of my head. Thanks so much! And I would just like to say wow all of you ladies (and gentlemen too) all are so busy with all of your projects. Makes my head spin a bit :)

    FMQ Free Motion Quilting, don't know about FMO
    LQS Local Quilt Store QS maybe just Quilt Store
    IMO In my Opinion
    IMHO In my humble opinion
    WIP Work in progress

    These are just a few. Sometimes I still have to ask.
