    Sometimes they come out like perfect right angles and sometimes it's more of a curve. I'm doing them all the same way so why do some come out so bad? Is there a secret?

    Make sure you are making perfect right angle corners when you do your first stitching of your binding down. It is so easy to slant one way or the other. Clear as mud?

    Some things just need to be seen to understand. Binding corners are one of those things, in my opinion.

    Maybe this video will help.

    If that is not clear enough there are several good binding videos on that site. Have fun.

    ugh that video has it already sewn on. I'll have to look for an earlier one I guess.

    I sometimes have problems as well. Most of the time they are really good, and then sometimes ????

    thanks. I posted at the same time. I am now waiting on this video to load. I'll get it sooner or later! lol.

    edit-this is the first one I watched before I found the other one. I think my problem is the actual stitching on of the binding strip but I'll try the hints in these videos for after it's sewn on and see if it helps.
