    Hey Shika--welcome! I love Indian food even more than i love Indian fabrics. I am currently working 2 jobs and don't have a lot of time for quilting--just building my working list of patterns for when I retire from at least one of my jobs, but I am on a quest for the perfect dal recipe. Would welcome your favorite.
    Again, welcome!

    i would look and judge the quilt by the over all appeal it has to me which would include color and pattern how well the 2 go together

    The colors catch my eye immediately (#1), but right afterwards, I notice the quality of the fabrics and the workmanship. A gorgeous quilt isn't so great after all if it's poorly sewn or is constructed with low-quality fabric.

    (As an aside: My dad always told me "If you're going to do it, do it right." He used to build a lot of things, always puttering around in his shop, and when he built something, he made it to last. He sometimes went a little overboard, but by golly, nothing he made EVER fell apart! :mrgreen: We always refer to his stuff as being "Daddy-Built". :lol: He's retired now and isn't able to build as much these days, but because of him, I try to make my quilts and other craft stuff the best I possibly can. :) )

    #1-our first intial draw is color (good or bad)and design-if it didn't draw our eyes would your really have noticed! Once it gets our attention then we analize it.

    #1 I am very in tuned to color, and sometimes its hard for me to look past a color combanation that I don't care for, and see the quilt. I don't know if I explained that very well. God bless. Penny

    Color always catches my eye first and then the pattern

    I just do what appeals to my eye. I don't fret about anything else. It doesn't matter how easy or complicated the pattern is. Since I'm color blind, color doesn't factor in at all. I work strictly in values and that works great for me. Obviously I want it square when done with no lumps. As long as it's fun and goes to a good home when done that's all that matters to me.

    I just love when all the points match up perfectly. But, if it is a gift to me I simply notice all the love that went into making it and nothing more.

    I always see color first. and think that's what makes a quilt loved the most. when you walk into a bedroom and SEE a beautiful quilt it's the color you see then the pattern then a closer look will detail the quilting. A beautiful pattern in a bad choice of colors... Get a good color wheel from an arts supply store. your color confidence will grow and grow! ube quilting

    'That is to say, "Is it something I have not seen before? Does it look like something that would teach me something new? Would it look particularly fetching in a mini?"
