    Hi, since I've just starting quilting about a year ago due to a bad back and not working anymore,I'm hooked and can't stop! My main problem is mitreing corners when I get to that point. I do all my quilting on my Viking,and love it! Would love any ideas or help from anyone out there. Thanks so much from Ohio. :shock: :mrgreen: Gail

    If it is the binding that you are referring to the above video is great for that.

    Binding borders are much more complicated for me to do then binding. I usually glue them exactly perfect then sew.
