    Thank you, so much, for taking the time to organize this for all of us! I can't tell you how many times I've seen abbreviations and had no clue as to what they meant.
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.

    Being new to quilting properly, I sometimes am lost when talking with other more experienced quilters. This helps!

    Thanks ... and hope it helps.

    And please don't feel lost or let the lingo intimidate you ... just ask!
    Quilters are always glad to help out.
    Not to worry ... I still scratch my head on some of the jargon!!

    I'll echo your appreciations of this site.
    While I'm a little further down the road than you, I truly can say I've learned a LOT.
    The best part are the many great friends I have made as the bonus to it all!

    As a newbie, this is so helpful! I spent the last 20 minutes to to figure out what LQS meant- thought it was a type of block. Not realizing that it meant " local quilt shop" !LOL
