OMG how funny. Some of those would really have you wondering if you were in a room full of quilters and you were like me--a newbie to quilting! CAn you just imagine the conversations between them? ROFL

That was funny....I never realized it until seeing that, that we quilters do have our own language....strange as it is.

I saw this awhile back and was wishing I'd kept the list as it's TOO funny! Thanks for putting it on the blog...I think I'll "borrow" it for my save file, if you don't mind!
