In 2013 we launched our Quilting Essentials collection which allowed you to combine any embroidery design that you currently own with our beautiful quilted backgrounds and borders. The end result were stunning quilts that would have never before been possible. With Beautiful Blocks and Borders we added even more options. We added new base shapes like rectangles and diamonds and each theme includes beautiful borders. There are 10 different themes total and each them has over 30 different designs!We are very excited about the new shapes, the rectangle and the diamond allow you to use larger designs with our backgrounds for amazing and unique quilting results. The great thing about this collection is that it allows you to take any of our other embroidery designs, those that are NOT in the Mix & Match Quilting Collection, and merge them to make an amazing quilt! By merging those designs with these Quilting Essentials blocks, you can create an embroidered quilt without the hassle of measuring or trying to center your design. Every design in this collection comes in 4 different sizes. This allows you to create a quilt of any size, using any hoop 6x10 or larger. This collection is also compatible with all of our other Mix & Match Quilting Collections. You can combine the blocks from this collection with more that 50 other Anita Goodesign Mix and Match Quilting titles and endless amounts of embroidery designs.
