The Quilt Show Puzzle: "That Was Then, This Is Now" by Mary McCauley
Do a puzzle of Mary McCauley's quilt, That Was Then, This Is Now.
That Was Then, This Is Now is a sampler quilt that Mary made early in her career in a sampler class. Mary felt that hers was towards the bottom of the class, and because of this she told herself that if she couldn't do it well at this point she was going to have fun doing it "badly". What that meant was taking typical nine-patch quilt designs, like the dresden plate and flying geese, and "updating" them to become a pizza pie, flying saucers, and so on.
