    CLLI Codes/Abbreviations

    Good morning,

    I am wondering if there is somewhere I can go to get a list of the CLLI Codes/Abbreviations you use. I can figure some of them out, but have trouble with some. I am sure after I hear them they will all make sense, but just can't put my finger on some of them. We referred to them as CLLI Codes where I use to work and we had hundreds of them. Looks like the quilting world has plenty of them too. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Re: CLLI Codes/Abbreviations

    Are you asking about things like HST? That’s half square triangle. Took me awhile on this forum to figure out the abbreviations like DH for darling husband,,,
    I seem to remember someone made a list but I can’t remember who... hopefully someone else will step up who can actually help answer your question.
    May the road rise up to meet you...
    May the wind be always at your back...

      You have to be careful where you use the codes. Once I sent my book club group an email and used the DH shortcut for my dear husband. I received a call from each member of the group wondering what the DH meant, boy did they come up with some weird answers.

        I can't take credit for this listing - her video is hilarious. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFcEbRkl8XQ
        You can also down a PDF of the Acronyms. I can't attach a pdf here. Here's the link to the listing: https://www.justgetitdonequilts.com/downloads

        Might not solve all of your questions, however, I think you will enjoy it.

        And the listings go on and on: https://harahara.net/English/resources/abbreviation.htm

        And another: https://www.abbreviations.com/acronyms/QUILT/99999

        Did find reference to the one which was originally on the forum, but the URL doesn't produce the page.

        Found another reference within forum mail: https://www.with-heart-and-hands.com...-acronyms.html this was from redcaboose1717 years ago.

          This made me smile because a while back I got a card from Miss May's husband letting me know how she was doing and he signed the card "May's DH". Our quilter speak is contagious!

            Thanks for all the responses. The attachments will help a great deal. I am pretty familiar with the some of the quilting ones as I refer to Jenny's Block books when I am not sure. It is more the personal ones I have trouble with....like the DH, which I thought was 'Dear Husband'. Guess I was close on that one. Again, thank you for all your assistance. The attachments will help a lot.

              DH can be "Darling" husband or "Dear" husband, but it can also be (depending on your mood) "D**n" Husband or even worse if your really mad at him.....
