Right side border

As promised, here are the photos of the Right side border.  I started this border from the bottom and then worked my way up, adding in the bias stem as I went.



I think the longest piece of bias for the stem was about 12" long


I found it better to select all the fabrics for the flowers and leaves over one or two days,


it seems as if the brain switches on after an hour or so 
as the selecting of fabric becomes much faster and it seems easy


to pick the right fabric for each flower and leaf, it also
 helps if the fabric is spread out all over the sewing room floor :)
