    It sounds more optimistic than a UFO, unfinished object. We could do with a little dictionary sometime, that we could bookmark. Anyone willing to chip in?

    I will have to bookmark this thread so when I run across one of those acronyms, I can look it up! I have figured out most of them.

    SITD- Stitch in the ditch

    FMQ- Free motion quilting

    LQS- Local quilt shop

    LAQ- Long Arm Quilter



    C'mon, I know there are lots more! :?

    Glad you asked! I was wondering what some of this shorthand meant, too! Thanks for the explanations all.
