    For me, if the colors don't work together, nothing else will make me love the quilt or the project.

    I think that technique - such as good seams and non-lumpinesss follow. But color coordination is paramount.

    Cheers, K

    color scheme and the pattern used. Intricacy has nothing to do with it...sometimes the more simple the pattern the more eye catching I find it.

    I agree Color!
    if I don't like the colors I wouldn't look at it close enough to see the other 5!

    My choice isn't listed----if I'm drawn to a quilt I always have to flip it over to see what the quilter chose for the backing. If I have to choose from your list: pattern,quilting design and method used----hand or machine. I love to see the color combos, but I don't have a favorite.

    #1 - Doesn't matter what the pattern is like if you like the colors it is gorgeous and if you don't it is not. #5 runs a close second.

    Color and design, I am geometrical or pattern type of person. So have to have a pttern that appeals to me in the right colors. So maybe it's pattern then color?

    #7! The feel! You can feel the love that goes into a quilt. Color doesn't matter, design doesn't matter. How it feels matters. Edie

    I think the color draws me in first. Then I go to design and if it is nicely done.

    Thw color usually gets my attention first but the overall look of the quilt is the most important. Some very simple quilts are wonderful. It is the overall look that makes a quilt special

    I am big on color. Not that there is a right or wrong but just what appeals to me.

    I'm a "sort-a" #1...I keep remembering something I heard in a lecture somewhere along the way..."Color gets all the credit and value does all the work"...

    #1 - but 2, 5 & 6 rate right up there too! lol I do know that some quilts just 'hit you' & you love them - regardless of any criteria/quality/color... It's such a personal thing - all in the eyes & heart of the beholder!

    Mine is "first impression". Sometimes it is color, sometimes pattern, sometimes quilting that draws me.

    5. If it is SQUARED up

    Im not talking about it being in a juried show, what appeals and is MOST important to YOU??
    First and foremost for me is the overall impression I get from looking at a quilt. I may not always like the colors used but I can certainly appreciate the artistry of it. I have even voted (at shows) for quilts using colors I can find garrish if I find other aspects of the quilt impressive. While I can greatly appreciate the art of machine quilting, I don't usually like the quilting to compete with the blocks. I feel it should enhance the quilt not fight it for attention. And, I can also appreciate whether it is someone's first quilt or their 50th... because you can see the potential in the first quilt (whether it is design or color choices or the actual execution of the pattern), and you stand in awe of the very experienced quilter's work.
