After I finished making the buds again I went to work getting all the leaves sewn together, turned and ironed. Here are the leaves and calyx's for each quilt. When I finished sewing the leaves together I turned them using a regular drinking straw and a small dowel I made from a wooden skewer I had sanded and varnished it so it was smooth.
One thing I would recommend is to check each leaf before it is turned to make sure the stitches a secure all around the edge . On some of my leaves I had to resew the edges again before turning ,misting and ironing them again. I have an example on the left.
