Crochet Butterfly

I have been doing quite a bit of crochet lately and I thought it would be fun to merge quilting and crochet together.

I found this butterfly as a free pattern on MyPicot.  It was too big for the project I had in mind so decided to make a quilted setting for it to go on.
I appliqued some leaves and quilted on my Q'nique using 2 layers of Hobbs 80/20 but did not really think two layers added much.

 I used a fine no8 crochet cotton and a 1mm hook to make the flower blossom and a slightly thicker cotton to crochet the branches. An embroidered French knot in the center finishes the flowers.

 The finished piece is quite small, measuring just over 12" square.
I quite like it and will probably hang it in my workroom somewhere.
Now onto something bigger.......
Happy quilting.
