Here's a similar pattern from the book Texas Quilts: Texas Treasures called Pine Burr or Pickle Dish, attributed to Elizabeth Ruff Mitchell in Texas or Georgia. Quilt shows the fading and color schemes typical of the 1880-1920 era.
I'd guess a fabric designer working for a feedsack company might have seen the Kansas City Star design as there is a similar pattern in a feedsack designed to be re-used as a pillow case with a border included.

The purple quilt is shaded counterchange fashion with darks in one block light in the next.
