by Rose Ann Cook
The desire to know more about her father’s family lead Rose Ann Cook not just to places and dates, but also to family members she didn’t know and photographs she had never seen. As an avid quilter and quilt shop owner, she naturally turned to designing quilts to honor her father and remind her of the members of his family who were such an important part of his life and who were now a part of her family history. From the Charming Baby quilt to The Old Patriot, there is a story that I am sure you can all relate to, and a quilt that you will want to make.

A Bag of Scraps

# 20063
by Edie McGinnis
Oh those scrappy quilts with stories to tell and mysteries to solve. Look closely. See this bit of plaid in purple? Here it is again in green ... and yellow ... and red! One can't help but wonder where those bits and pieces came from. Edie McGinnis explores the origins of these delightful scraps: likely from one of the nation's Garment Districts. During the heyday of the Kansas City garment district, it was said that one in every seven women in the country wore a coat or suit made there. You'll learn about the locale and the players: immigrant workers who toiled the factories, designers whose splashy lives became the daily news, and the museum there today. AND where all those scraps went! You'll also find easy-to-follow directions to make eight spectacular scrap quilts - some from old designs, some new - and a handful of fun projects. Best of all: a portion of the proceeds from this book will go to support Kansas City's Garment District Museum

Annas Quilts

# 19774
A goosebump moment of discovering her Aunt Anna's quilt in a book led Donna di Natale on a hunt for the quilt's origin. And the enduring freshness of the 1930s quilt design led to her recreating the quilt using modern techniques and materials. The templates for Anna's quilt are based on the original design. For the other projects, I simplified the daisy and morning glory templates. And because I love wool applique, I have included a wool applique wall hanging or table quilt and a small table topper. The templates for some of the projects have been reduced in size, and new designs were added to the wallhanging, but every project in this book contains the rose applique found in Anna's original quilt to demonstrate the timelessness of this design.

Pretty Petals

# 20060
by Sheri Howard
It's the love of flowers, and the sketches they inspired, that grew into Sheri Howard's "Pretty Petals" quilt. "Pretty Petals" is a collection of whimsical flowers drawn from fond memories and a colorful imagination. The colors were taken from a box of watercolors and that first 24-count box of crayons Sheri had in grade school.
A delightful variation of "Pretty Petals" is the "Kaleidoscope" quilt. Sheri shows you how to take "Pretty Petals" blocks and turn them into a colorful kaleidoscope of flowers. The versatility of these floral designs is amazing! Then there's "Red Poppy Garden – a simple nine-block quilt with large appliqué pieces – something beginners will certainly appreciate. Accent pieces include the "Euro Pillow Sham," "Frilly Pillow Case," and "Red Throw Pillow." Sheri's signature style also adorns her must-have "Market Bag."
Take some time and stroll through the imaginative garden of Sheri Howard's "Pretty Petals."

My Stars VI: Patterns from The Kansas City Star, Volume VI
Welcome to the sixth book in our My Stars series – we’re trucking right along! The books are going to be such great collector’s items once we get them all completed. It’s fun offering these patterns in a random order because there is sure to be something for everyone in each book. Patterns in this book include Marble Quilt, Honey Bee, The Dogwood Blossom, Pineapple, and Granny’s Choice, just to name a few. It seems that most of these patterns are more unique than some of the more popular ones, and thus provide endless opportunities for quiltmaking. Be sure to check out the photographs of the gorgeous quilts that accompany some of the blocks. The quilt contributors are people just like you – fans of the historical patterns who enjoy making new quilts with historical blocks. It’s always exciting to see a new twist! The My Stars series is Kansas City Star Quilts’ effort to redraft the entire 1,000+ pattern historical collection, and offer it in bound printed volumes for pattern lovers to stitch and collect. Each of the 25 patterns in this book includes fabric requirements, templates and assembly instructions, as well as the original sketch and caption that were printed in the newspaper.
