A Penny Saved Republished

 
A Penny Saved from the 2007 issue of the Fons and Porter magazine.  They are republishing it in one of their latest books.
 
 
I used the needle turn applique method on all the applique.  They use fusible instructions for their construction of the quilt.  It's not an easy quilt to make with the background one large piece, but if you work from the center out it's easier than you think. 
                              
 
Lots and lots of circles, 270 and if I recall, I didn't duplicate any of the circle fabrics since it was originally for a challenge to use as many different Moda fabrics in the quilt as possible.
 
 
Here's the book, haven't received my copy so I can't say what other quilts are included.

  7. I saved this pattern from the first time it was published and even have the background fabric set aside. Maybe it's time to dust it off and start it!

  9. I was going to make one of these quilts ages ago but the idea of doing all the circles on one big piece of fabric was what made me think twice about it. I still love the design.
