I am new to appliqué and have done a bit of research on the techniques. My creativity got to going and I thought of crocheting these beautiful butterflies and incorporating them into a quilt. Each will measure 8" wide x 10.5" long, therefore thinking of putting them on the diagonal of a 12" finished block. I am not ready to start this project as of yet, but wanted to do some more research on the "how to's". I have a huge fear that this idea is completely out there on mixing crochet with quilting. My question is: Would I just sew around the body, wings and antennas or would I attempt to sew the detailed parts inside the wings as well? One other question: Can you use wax paper with yarn like you would fabric as in a fusible web type of process? My heartfelt gratitude in advance for any advice that may be given. All of you talented people are much appreciated and inspiring!
