    I know what you mean ... and know how frustrated I was when I first started and was seeing all the alphabet soup. Believe me, I had some creative versions ... that were oh so wrong!

    As I see more I am adding them to my master list ... please add any that are not on this list, in a post below.

    At some point, we'll have to start a new thread with the new and improved listing.

    A new one, not on the list .... PUPs .... Poor Unforgettable Projects.
    I have lots of PUPpies!

    Thanks for the additions ... I keep adding them to my master list and at some point, we'll start a new thread with the inclusions.

    Anyone with more acronyms or quilt'isms to add ... please do share and post!

    Some of my favorites can't be used here!!

    It is nice having a consolidated list - thank you for doing that.

    I won't say 'complete' list - because I don't think that is possible.

    BearIG ... yes the list can never be complete ... and all I have tried to do is the consolidation as you have recognized.

    DulbB ... As above ... TTYL proves the point!!

    Bear ... good one! Already added to my list.

    HGrammie ... glad it helps! I think we've all had times where we wondered what the alphabet soup was all about. And that's not just in our early days here on the Board. Sometimes, just stop and think oh what makes sense here ... and it comes to you!

    Thank you very very much for this. I am new to quilting and to this site. I worry sometimes I will survive but I think all I have to do is reach out and ask for help and most of you all will come a typing....LOL

    I don't think this should be asked here, but I don't know where else to ask. What does
    Row Robin and
    FWS Pony Club mean?

    The FWS Pony Club means The Farmer's Wife Pony Club Sampler Quilt. A number of us from the QB decided two years ago to make The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt (FWS). We did two blocks a week for over a year, and showed photos of our blocks each week. When we finished the FWS Quilt, Laurie Hird, the author of FWS Quilt had written another book along the same vein, The Farmer's Wife Pony Club Quilt. So we started in January of this year doing two blocks from this book each week.

    "You have enough quilts made when your soul is filled, your creativity satisfied and your fingers just won't work anymore."
