The quilter and Kansas City Star Quilts editor shares a collection of historic designs inspired by a treasure trove of antique American quilts.
Finders Keepers Quilts is based on a collection of quilts discovered in an abandoned farmhouse in Davis County, Iowa. As new owner Susan Knapp searched through the house, she found stone crocks, pretty dishes, and other intriguing odds and ends. But best of all, she found a box of beautiful quilts made in the early 1900s.
Famed quilter Edie McGinnis has worked with Susan to re-create these stunning designs, using reproduction fabric to reflect the time period in which they were made. She has also included an updated version of each quilt, with clear, concise instructions that will appeal to today’s modern quilters.
