Antique String-Pieced Eight-Pointed Star

I just finished making this replica of an Antique String-Pieced Eight-Pointed Star. The pattern is from Circa 1890 according "Scrap Patchwork & Quilting " by Marti Michell published in 1992.  I made it by pulling material from my scrap bag. I wish my scrap bag would get smaller but it just seems to grow. Oh well I guess that just means I''m sewing a lot. I love variety and this was really fun to make.

It turned out great. I know what you mean about the scrap bag, every time I finish a quilt out of there I'm so happy.. then I look at all that's in there and realize I didn't even put a dent in it, lol. I also decided I was going to make a scrappy double wedding ring so I started putting leftover strips into a separate bag, judging from how full the bag is already, I'm about three months behind on that quilt, lol.

I had bought pieces of this same oattern at a garage sale, I have enough to make 3 stars, I don't want to cover up the paper on the back, it's 1903. But I traced them, and am going to make a modern one, Have to figure out what size to make the triangles. Love it
