Default Quilt acronyms

As you know, as quilters we're pretty good at coming up with short set of letters to explain quilting terms - I mean, we've all got UFO's, right? And we happily use FQ's in our quilts or bags too.

Try googling quilt acronyms, and you'll find some like these:
(Not so familiar, but very clever)

HSY Haven't Started Yet

PHD Project Half Done (yes - we all have PHD's behind our names!!!)

WIM Work In Mind

WIVSP Work in Very Slow Progress

TOAD Trashed Object Abandoned in Disgust

PIG Project In Grocery bag

USO Unstarted Object

STASH Special Treasures All Secretly Hidden (!!!)

SABLE Stash Accumulation Beyond Life Expectancy

And my favourites...

FART Fabric Acquisition Road Trip ( so can we call previous trips Old farts???)

WOMBAT Waste Of Money Batting And Time

If you liked these, you'll find many more listed with them, at the following link that Mighty mentioned.


Hope these help you make your way around the alphabet soup!
