    Practice! :D

    Make 1 quilt, watch a tute, make another, watch another one. Around quilt 6, you're like "ahhh!" and they come out perfect :D

    Also, read Chele's tute on the current Newsletter.

    They do get easier but it takes awhile. You'll get it! :thumbup:

    There are several video demonstrations on Youtube that include mitering corners. My favorite binding video there is this one:

    Note: there's a second part to it. I'm pretty sure she demonstrates how she does the mitered corners.
