Am sewing a baby blanket. Fleece backed and cotton on other side. I am planning on appliqueing on the cotton side. What I wonder, have not tried. Can a lightweight batting be put under the bit of appliqueing while I applique it, then cut away. I would like this applique to stand out a bit since most of this side is plain. Anyone done this? Then I would sandwich it together and quilt with straight lines only. Thanks for any input.
