Note: Automatic Motif fills are done using stitch patterns. The quick menu has a quick motif fill option. Manual Motif fills are created by drawing an object just like you would for a fill but the stitch type is a “MotifFill”. A Motif fill can have holes and added graphics just like normal fills. The motifs are simply any other graphics you want to add to the Motif Fill. They are added to the motif fill by adding them to the fill just like you would an emboss. If you have several of them in parallel to each other make sure they are in order so that the stitches continue from one to the next. It’s a good idea to group them before you add them.
