i wasn't as happy with my yeallow bells,  i will redo a couple of petals,   it's a pretty block, and a little tricky getting the over and unders.    i stitched down the stems first  and leaves, but left the calyxes unsewn.

this is a pretty little flower.

That is how I usually do calyxes - I leave them open and then put the petals in and applique them down.  I don't think there is an easier way.  If there is, let me know.  I am always looking for the best way to do things.  You did a wonderful job on this, Gini.

Very pretty Gini.  I know what you mean about the overs and unders.  I did my calyxes the same way you did.
