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? My heartfelt gratitude in advance for any advice that may be given. All of you talented people are much appreciated and inspiring!
