The Cocktail Party Analogy
Here are some photos of a couple of quilts he has made and shared with the class.
He told us "The Cocktail Party" analogy. I hope I get it right here - I found it very interesting.
He said some quilts are like the boring cocktail party you go to every year during the holidays. All the same people are there, you talk about
all the same things and one year kind of runs into the next. These are the matchy matchy quilts made from one line of fabric and everything goes together nicely but it's kind of boring.
Then, he said, there is the cocktail party you remember for all the wrong reasons. There was just one person there who was loud and obnoxious and ruined the whole party. This is the quilt where one fabric stands out screaming "look at me!" and your eye is drawn just to that
