Quiz for Quilters - Quilt Trivia Questions
I love to have a go at doing quizzes. Whether they are in the newspaper, on the TV, magazines or even on the web. I love the challenge that a quiz presents to me. I don’t do it just because I fancy my chances at getting everything right, but because I especially love to learn and I find this a quick and easy way to learn something new.

My favorite quizzes are trivia quizzes and I like having a go at all sorts of subjects. At times, I may be driven to the dictionary or the internet to seek out the answer, and this will sometimes lead me off on another tangent of learning. Oh dear, in my school reports my teachers always said “Judith is easily distracted” and isn’t that the truth!!

To that end, I’ve devised the following trivia quiz, but all the questions have something to do with quilting. The subjects are needles, threads, color wheel, design, fabrics, formulas, machine quilting, floss/embroidery threads, rotary cutting, foundation piecing, marking your quilt, machine piecing and copyright.
I do hope you enjoy this quiz. The answers can be found on the link and the bottom of this article.
