EQ7: Block Drawings Disappear When Set on Quilt

Block drawings disappear when set on quilt

If you drag a block drawing to the quilt, and it seems to disappear, do this:

  1. Right-click on your quilt layout. A menu displays.
  2. Click on “Outline Patches” and “Outline Blocks.”
  3. Click away from the menu, to put it away, and you should now see the block drawings you have set.

Explanation: “Outline Patches” and “Outline Blocks” are checked by default. But you can uncheck them. When “Outline Patches” and “Outline Blocks” are unchecked, you cannot see patch lines or block outlines. A block drawing is only lines. So setting a line drawing is invisible until you choose to show the lines on the quilt.
