Here at Anita Goodesign we are always looking for ways to improve our collections. The
Mix and Match Quilts are so easy to make that everyone always asks “What about my other Anita designs, how can I use those designs in my embroidered quilts?” The answer is the Quilting Essentials Collection! We created this collection, that consists of quilt blocks and free motion stitches, which easily merges your existing designs and allow you to create beautiful quilt blocks in your machine without using any additional software. You simply open the desired background block, merge your existing embroidery design on top and stitch the block! You will end up with a perfectly centered quilt block. There are many backgrounds and borders to choose from, the possibilities are endless.
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 and 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.
Each of the designs in this collection comes in 4 different sizes. This allows you to create a quilt of any size, using any hoop 5×7 or larger. This collection is also compatible with all of our other Mix and Match Quilting Collections. You can combine the blocks from this collection with Foundations, Jelly Roll, Butterflies & Bees and many more.
This collection doesn’t just come with basic square quilt blocks. There are 3 different sizes of squares, 2 different rectangles, 2 different mitered corners and 2 different triangles; each with background stitches included. With these combinations you can create hundreds of different quilts! The following pages will demonstrate how to combine the Quilting Essentials blocks for magnificent results.
