    Hi, I am a quilter living in Ireland, and have been making quilts for over ten years, and just joined your site in case someone amongst your members might be able to help me. I have made a quilt consisting of large hexagonal crazy patches (approx 4 inches on each side) and I want to bind it. I have worked out how to bind the external corners with a mitred or angled 'pleat', but still can't crack the internal corners. Please can anyone help?

    I'm wanting to do this too. There was a thread on here a while ago, with some links to tutorials on the net. It's not as hard as it sounds. :-)

    LaceLady from Ireland what a great name! I use to do a little Irish crochet. Do you do lace work or just enjoy using lace?

    I taught lacemaking for twenty years in the UK, before moving to the west of Ireland in 2000. Quilting was always my second love, and since I could't find any lacemakers here, I joined a geat group of quilting ladies instead. I have since met some Irish crocheters, but they were about 4 hours drive away - too far to meet very often. Since retiring, I have bought a Bernina 730, and now enjoy incorporating machine embroidery in my quilts too. When I have sussed out how to, I will post some photos.

    That was an awesome tutorial. That will definitely come in handy in the future.

    Lacelady: Welcome to the board. I hope you will post a picture of your finished quilt!

    Welcome from an O'Brien in Newfoundland Canada! My husband's family came from County Clare. We are going to Ireland for his retirement trip...

    Now for your question... I thought like you that there must be some magical complicated way of doing this but there's not...

    Some nice person just told me to pivot when I came to the turn. I did. And it worked. You just fold the material in under in the corner when you stitch the binding down on the reverse side. Works great!

    Be sure to post a pcture when you're done!

    the way I do it is not to use double fold binding, too thick. when I get to a innie I put my needle down right at the inner point and then rotate the quilt and binding, smooth out so there are no ripples and then contine stitching to the next one. It looks like a mess but when you turn it over it lays very nicely. If done right there should only be a little fold that lays in the valley.
