Hollis remarked (something to the effect of), "When you go to an art museum you stand back to look at the piece, but when quilters look at quilts, they want to get their face right up to the quilt." We love to see the details. We want to figure out how the artist did what he/she did. We want to appreciate the perfection of the stitching because we know how difficult it is to achieve.

Speaking of perfection, those concentric circles in the bottom one are perfect--and VERY difficult to achieve.
