    I think color grabs me first and then the pattern and the quilting only when I can get close enough to actually stand there and admire it. From a distance it doesn't always show where color does.

    The color and movement of the overall pattern. The quilting would be the third item that would catch my eye if I was close enought to the quilt.

    Overall design, which includes colour, but colour alone won't hold me for long if there's nothing interesting going on with the rest of the quilt.

    many things in many quilts, but color has to be right to be a total wow. ;-)

    I have been thinking about this. Usually I love the quilting, but I remember seeing a quilt and I am not sure where. It was a Bargello made with gorgous colors. The types of feathers that were quilted were exquisite, but they took over the quilt. I kept thinking I would have loved to see the top.

    I WOW on everything in life. Colors of the material, quilt patterns, the actual quilting either hand or machine quilting can WOW me, the texture of the material, the size of the quilt, the borders, definitely applique, even the binding, then there is the back of the quilt - I WOW on backs also.
