The Quilt Show Puzzle: "Surprise" by Mary McCauley

Do a puzzle of Mary McCauley's pop-up quilt, Surprise.

 

Surprise was made for the Quilting Symposium in New Zealand that Mary taught at in 2017. While made of fabric, it is a non-traditional quilt as it folds open and shut. While shut it has a beautiful rainbow and diamond design on the outside, but when open displays one of Mary's fabulous pop-up quilts made of fabric, hence the "surprise" of the title. The design was inspired by one her previous quilts, Bargello, and pop-up work she had seen cut out of paper. Alex and Ricky both thought the pop-up looked liked a cityscape. What does it remind you of?

Very cool quilt!! It would be really interesting to see a video of this quilt being folded and unfolded so we could see how it works.
