    I wish my husband would stitch with me. But he says my sewing room is a scary place. And sometimes, it is!

    You'll get used to the acronyms! I was used to the generic ones when I came here, and some of the quilt acronyms sent me for a loop for awhile!

    To answer your question, with a few of the other more common ones ...

    DH = Dear Husband (or could be Darned Hubby, if he's in the dog house that day :))
    DW = Dear Wife
    DD = Dear Daughter ... and so on for the rest of the family
    DIL = Daughter In Law

    OBW = One Block Wonder
    LQS = Local Quilt Shop
    LAQ = Long Arm Quilter
    FQ = Fat Quarters
    HST = Half Square Triangles

    So if you see an acronym ... try to think, what might fit in the context and you may just have it right.

    we have 5 more hexes to sew together and then he is taking them to the design wall to see what we have so far.. stay tune.. it's happening today !!!
    my 5 year old grandson even came in and sat at table and made some hex designs.. he thought that was pretty cool to turn them and to change the look...

    and a hip hip hooray for progress

    I think DGS will be claiming this quilt!

    Better still ..... take him to the store to pick his fabric out for his very own OBW quilt. When I did my course, one of the ladies did one with polar bears, seals, cardinals and lots of wintery type animals in it. It turned out beautiful ... andyour DGS would love it as it turned somewhat into an I Spy Quilt!!

    Mine is a paleface compared to yours! ... I am quite happy with it, but it's just so not me as I'm not the fluffly, frou-frou, frilly type. Yours is my colours to a T!!!!!!!!!! The vibrant greens, yellows, oranges, purples. oooohh!

    The best way to figure out placement .... get them all up there and don't worry too much about the where at first. Then start doing the shifting. I tried to not have straight rows of similarity of design and colour... somewhat have them show movement in the placement, by coming up in a swirl, rather than that straight line. I think you have a really good start with what you have already.

    My husband would never touch a sewing machine. Too bad. I think he might like it if he tried it!
    You are so lucky! Looks like he is hooked!

    There is a list of acronyms under main topic, under the rules section.

    It is ok to share Lori... and to see what his creations are is the best pay off ever... and besides, it is his money that replenishes my stash.. lol it is a win win situation !!
