Quilting Quiz Winner

The correct answers were

(a), (c), (a), (c), (c), (d)

The question that had everyone stumped was the Amish quilt question
The answer was
(a) Amish quilters nearly always use solid colours of fabric

True The Amish do not use electricity but still use sewing machines

Amish quilters do not use electricity because they do not want to be connected to the society at large in any way, including the power grid. Instead, the Amish use batteries, generators, gas, and oil to power their sewing machines, tools, or home appliances.
