Edie McGinnis began her career at The Kansas City Star in 1987 and during that time she has become a devoted advocate for reviving The Star’s tradition of publishing quilt blocks. She is now part of the Star Books staff.
She has written eleven books for The Kansas City Star, including the best-selling Feedsacks! In addition, she writes a column for The Star’s quilt Web site, PickleDish.com. The Star has also published single patterns of two quilts Edie has designed.
Edie lectures on The Kansas City Star quilt patterns, their history, and the designers who worked at The Star from 1928-1961 when the patterns were originally published. She has been quilting for about 30 years and is a member of The American Quilting Society and The Quilters Guild of Greater Kansas City.
