    definitely #1 but if it is lumpy and not squared up, it really detracts from how much i like the quilt too.

    #1.....then #2.......then #3 get the idea. When I look at a quilt, I guess color grabs me first, but then I look at all the rest.

    In my opinion, #1 is most important for gorgeousness, followed closely by overall design.

    Color is very subjective and sometimes will turn you off to a quilt simply because it is not a favorite color scheme of yours.

    For me, workmanship is of most importance...points are sharp and meet, seams join properly, everything square and that the quilt lays flat. I am a hand quilter so I also look at the stitches ...big or small...as long as they are the same.

    I think color selection is key in a quilt that is a real hit.

    I agree that it's color for me but the design can certainly enhance the color choices!

    color for me first, then does the pattern appeal to me, then can it be used and washed after using it and will it hold togeather. I make quilts to use, I love to look at the beautiful quilts at shows none of mine will ever be in that class, but i love my quilts too, as the journy of picking out the fabrics or dyeing them for a quilt is half the fun piecing it and quilting it the other half the fun.After they are done most of mine go to friends and family.

    #1- it's what catches your eye, not the pattern.All the other things you notice later.

    #1 for sure! That is always my most difficult decision when I make a quilt!

    Color selection and coordination. It is what the eye first sees.

    #1 eye appeal makes all the difference to me.
