I confess to a weakness for good informational graphics. Edward Tufte’s books on information design and data visualization continue to fascinate me. Occasionally my eye is caught by nicely packaged quilting related graphics.
Thanks to Quilter’s Pastiche, I found a great chart for quilting related acronyms.
My favs are FART, WOMBAT, FOB, and SABLE.
Here’s a handy guide to batting from Fabric Depot.

Great list of acronyms! I especially love WHIMM and WWIT…and I suspect I have already passed the SABLE boundary…
Oh good, you’re still with us. I was wondering if Hong Kong had swallowed you whole.
I thought for a bit it might! Coming up for air now!
Glad to read you’re quilting again.
Funny–a very similar list of acronyms was just included in our guild’s newsletter!
Ah, the viral spread of information via the Internet.
Thanks for sharing this — fun and informative.
Glad you enjoyed it.
Thanks for sharing. I think batting especially confuses people, even us experienced quilters! I found this list of acronyms and other terms. It’s even longer! and might be the source of those above.
There’s definitely a lot of overlap between the acronym lists. And batting! What irritates me is when the composition of a brand I’ve used successfully seems to have changed with the latest package. I’ve become leery of batting purchased at Joann’s for this reason.
Yes, they do change texture and loft and all, it seems. No wonder they are so baffling!
Thanks for sharing this chart with your readers. I am going to share it on Facebook for my quilter friends. I enjoy your blog.
Thanks so much for reading. Feel free to share.
WISP, WWIT and WHIMM apply directly to me.
I think at some point all the acronyms apply to me.
