Edie McGinnis began her career at The Kansas City Star newspaper in 1987, and during that time she became a devoted advocate for reviving The Star’s tradition of publishing quilt blocks. She also joined the Kansas City Star Quilts books staff and wrote a weekly column for KansasCityStarQuilts.com. The Star has also published single patterns of two quilts Edie designed.

Edie lectures on The Kansas City Star quilt patterns, their history, and the designers who worked at The Star during 1928–1961, when the patterns were originally published. She has been quilting for about 30 years and is a member of the American Quilter’s Society and the Quilters Guild of Greater Kansas City.
