Do you know the differences between all the different layers? Here are some tips and tricks to using them.
But what if you don’t want the background square behind the butterfly? You would need to use a Motif. There are lots of Motifs included in EQ7 but it’s also easy to change an applique block into a Motif!
Open the Butterfly block to the Block Worktable
On your keyboard press CTRL + A to select all
On your keyboard press CTRL + C to copy
Click Block > New Block > PatchDraw Motif
On your keyboard press CTRL + V to paste
You may have to move your butterfly so that it’s all within the block
Click Add to Sketchbook
Click Work on Quilt
Make sure you are on Layer 2.
Click the Set Block tool
Click the Motif tab
Now when you place the motif on Layer 2 (and color it) it will show up without the background square.
Hopefully that helps!
