Finders Keepers - A Rare Cache of Quilts from the 1900s is based on a collection of quilts found in an abandoned farmhouse in Davis County, Iowa. Searching through the house, the new owner, Susan Knapp, found stone crocks, pretty dishes, and other intriguing little odds and ends. But best of all, she found a box of early 1900s quilts in a closet. Famed quilter Edie McGinnis has worked with Susan to re-create the early quilts, 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.
Edie McGinnis is a prolific author and has been an editor for fifteen years at Kansas City Star Quilts. She is also a popular teacher and lecturer. Her work has appeared in several quilting magazines. ediemcginnis.com
