    I also do the cut out a piece as I go method. I've tried laying out the binding, but it never seems to work.

    Yep, I forgot to lay my binding on the quilt and see if I started in a good place to keep the binding seams from falling on a quilt corner. didn't do it! but I made it all right. just barely missed the seam being on the corner, it mitered fine. But that will teach me!

    I do not use the continuous binding but rather cut my binding for each side. The double-mitered method makes it much easier to control just that problem.

    Just linking to the tutorial. If I make something where rounded corners won't work (which is rare-I actually love the look) I am trying this method for sure.
