For those of you unfamiliar with Kansas City Star Quilts, here's a bit of history: in the fall of 1999, The Star, now known as Kansas City Star, printed a few dozen patterns as a book to test the continued popularity of patterns printed in The Weekly Star newspaper. The 5,000-book printing sold out in less than two weeks! Since then, Kansas City Star Quilts has published a variety of books, introduced innovative patterns, re-introduced the “Star Quilts” brand, and debuted the ever-popular KCSQ blog character Mrs. Bobbins, who also got a starring role in The Big Book of Bobbins.

“The Kansas City Star Quilts list dovetails perfectly with our existing imprints. Their authors are leaders in their fields and we are proud to carry on the historical traditions started in 1928. And yes, we will continue to bring you Mrs. Bobbins, a favorite of KCSQ blog and Facebook followers,” says our CEO Todd Hensley.
