    I am adding binding to a table runner that is pointed at both ends but I don't know what to do at the corners. I have looked up mitering, but everything & everyone assumes that your corner is 90 degrees. Can any one help me with mitering those 4 corners (before the highest point) that are less than 90 degrees?

    Thank you,
    Thuan

    That was quick. Thank you so much. I just watched the tutorial. She made it look so easy, I am going to put it into practice right now; I am sure mine is not going to look like hers, but at least I "know" how :lol:
    Thank you, thank you, thank you,

    Thank you all so much. I was doing the exactly same thing at the end of last week. Foolishly I struggled on - but know better for next time. I did Google - but it depends what you search for as to what you get. I will book mark those videos.

    This will be so helpful when I get to my table runners and mats - thank you so much - I put it in my favorites -to watch again and again, if need be... sometimes things don't work right the first time - so go back to watch the video again.... happy sewing!

    Anne Marie - wow you have two! They are gorgeous. Although Tallulah is much quieter now that she is 10, she is still bonkers! Wouldn't have it any other way!!
